An 81-year-old widow brought down the house singing Stephen Sondheim’s classic song, “Send In The Clowns” on “Ireland’s Got Talent.”
The stylish great-grandmother from Tallaght, Ireland has been singing all her life, but it wasn’t until her granddaughter entered her into the competition that she received worldwide recognition.
Before her emotional performance, Evelyn told the judges her beloved husband passed away seven years ago. She loved to sing for him, along with her six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
“I miss him like a limb,” she told the judges. “He was a good man. He used to love to hear me sing.”
After a much-deserved standing ovation, Evelyn broke down in tears and said her husband would be so proud of her.
Judge Michelle Visage was so overcome with emotion that she pressed the golden buzzer, sending her straight to the semi-finals.
“She stood up here and commanded the stage better than anyone we’ve yet seen on this show,” Michelle said. “I’m not lucky enough to have my mother here with me on this journey, and then she stood here and she sang one of the most incredible Stephen Sondheim songs ever written, only meant to be sung by a woman this age who has lived a life and she sang it with love and that just killed me.”
