Frumpy IT Engineer Can Actually Sing

Behold, ladies and gentlemen, your latest frump-to-fame story: Michael Collings, a 19-year-old IT engineer and wannabe recording artist, wowed the judges and audience on Britain’s Got Talent with an impressive and charming acoustic performance of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” (watch a higher quality video of the performance here). All that in spite of being overweight and appearing dressed for “a long-haul flight.” Who woulda thunk? It seems you don’t have to be conventionally attractive to be talented. TC mark
