In the age of TikTok, we’re seeing a whole bunch of “staged” videos go viral. There are challenge videos, there are talent-flexing videos and there are wholesome videos. This video in question somehow manages to be a little bit of all three. It’s unclear if this video is staged or not, but regardless, the internet is obsessed with the talent displayed.
Speaking of viral music sensations, we spoke about Lewis Capaldi and his BRIT’S acceptance speech on this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For…
In the video, comedian Kevin Freshwater is seen to be going through a subway station, getting strangers to participate in his ‘finish the lyric’ game. Here, he encounters Charlotte Awbery who showcases a vocal performance that gives Lady Gaga a run for her money.

Since this video was posted to Facebook, it has gone crazy viral on Twitter with many users expressing their love for Awbery.
Now the internet has begun a deep-dive into her other covers. Plot twist: they’re all incredible.
Many Twitter users are also now comparing Awbery to Lady Gaga, as a result of the cover.
Charlotte Awbery is a professional wedding singer from Romford, east London, which ultimately explains her shocking ability to slay the hardest riff in ‘Shallow’. Considering she hadn’t even finished her morning coffee, we simply must stan.
Her Instagram account has skyrocketed in followers since the video has gone viral. At the time of writing, she is nearing 100K followers, shooting up from under 10k, which she had before the ‘Shallow’ video came out.
A star really is born!
