Soul Singer Earns Standing Ovation With ‘Glory’ on America’s Got Talent 10 (VIDEO)

Soul singer Sharon Irving owned the stage with her performance of “Glory” on America’s Got Talent 10, “Live Show 2”!

Sharon sings “Glory” by Common and John Legend, and in an interesting choice, she actually raps the rap part instead of singing it, as opposed to other people who perform this song on talent shows (like India Carney did on The Voice). The more the song goes on, with its towering arrangement and its choral backing, and Sharon’s wonderful stage presence (she’s even got style, with a badass cape that makes her look like a superhero preacher), the more I come to realize that I might actually like Sharon’s version BETTER than the original.

But what do you think? Watch the moving video below:

Judges: Sharon earns a standing ovation from all four judges. Mel B says Sharon is already a ready-made star, and notes how happy she is that she hit her Golden Buzzer for Sharon. Heidi and Howie think she performed amazingly well, with Howie adding that Sharon should not only always sing, she should always sing exactly like she just did. Howard declares that Sharon is not only an amazing singer, she may be the million dollar act. Nick interviews Sharon, and she fights back tears when talking about how her grandmother has never been able to come to her performances. “But I can feel her here all the time now,” she says. I think Sharon could be the one to beat in this competition.
