Hollie Steel Is Britain’s Got Talent Singing Sensation

Hollie Steel Is Britain’s Got Talent Singing Sensation
Meet Hollie Steel, Britain’s Got Talent latest singing sensation. See photos, video and a biography here of the 10-year-old singer with a stunningly mature voice whose brilliant singing was a shock to everyone as she sang ‘I Could Have Dance All Night’ the classic song from the musical My Fair Lady.Hollie Steel, not to be confused with Holly Steel, or anyone else, for that matter, looked every bit like a 10-year-old girl, dressed as a ballerina in a pink and lavender tutu and ballet slippers at the Manchester audition. One might have expected the dulcet tones of a child’s voice. But after the Susan Boyle phenomena, if we have learned anything by now at Britain’s Got Talent, we have learned that looks can be deceiving.

The 10-year-old singer at Britain’s Got Talent, Hollie Steel, played beautifully against expectations. She came out on stage, and began a ballet dance; Simon Cowell was just about to hit the buzzer on the dancing.Suddenly she stopped dancing and began to sing the classic that Audrey Hepburn brought to fame in the 1964 film adaptation of the musical ‘My Fair Lady.’ Forever we will remember the Hollie Steel ‘I could Have Danced all Night’ video. We will watch it and watch her, as did the audience and judges, completely astonished to hear such a powerful soprano voice singing the song and ending on a high note, perfectly placed and perfectly in pitch, that would have challenged an adult professional singer.

The Britain’s Got Talent audience always loves a thrilling surprise and they were on their feet cheering the young singer. The judges were as impressed as they were surprised by the precocious talent.Amanda Holden began the round of superlatives by saying, ‘It’s just ridiculous how much talent you have. The voice that came out of you I was stunned at.’Guest judge Kelly Brook, said, ‘I just didn’t expect that voice to come out of a tiny little thing. Beautiful and lovely.’Piers Morgan chimed in saying, ‘We’ve seen lots of children in this series. I have never heard any of them sing as well as you.’

Simon Cowell began his remarkis by telling Hollie Steel what he didn’t like. He said, ‘I didn’t like what you were wearing because you came over as a typical little girl who wants to be a ballerina. I wasn’t crazy about the song. Then I heard you sing and I think, Hollie, you’ve got a fantastic voice. The fact that you don’t know how good you are is what I really like about you. But this just might just be the tip of the iceberg because I thikn you’re better than that.’

Needless to say, the young Hollie Steel, Britain’s Got Talent audition won her a yes from each judge. We can look forward to Hollie Steel pictures of success. She becomes the next contender to the overnight international star, Scottish singer, Susan Boyle, who sang I Dreamed A Dream so astonishingly, must face if she hopes to win the competition and sing at the Royal Variety Performance and claim the cash prize of £100,000. Fellow child singer, the 12-year-old Shaheen Jafargholi from Wales who sang the Michael Jackson classic, Who’s Loving You, is another strong contender.

Hollie Steel was born in 1998. Her age is 10. Her name is sometimes misspelled as Holly Steel. She is from Accrington Lancashire, England. Her parents are Nina Steel, 37, and Jason Steel 38. Both are NHS audiologists, and as such, they help children and the elderly with hearing problems. She has a brother Joshua Steel, 15, who aspires to a career as a theater actor on West End.

When Hollie Steel was four years old, she contracted a near fatal case of pneumonia, and narrowly escaped having to have part of her lung removed when it became filled with fluid. Instead, she spent three months in Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and underwent surgery that drained the fluid saving both her life and her lung and, her capacity to sing.Not only did she recover, but she began singing at age six. Hollie Steel is now a student at Oakhill College in Whalley, Lancashire. She has performed in musicals including Annie and Joseph And His Technicolor Dreamcoat.
