Judges Didn’t Expect This Prison Guard Could Sing Like This – Her Voice Took Their Breath Away

Talent shows really do make dreams come true. We all know about Kelly Clarkson and Susan Boyle, but quietly hundreds of amateur singers grabbed the opportunity to make careers in the music industry.

In 2013 Sam Bailey was 35 and working as a prison officer, not exactly the best stage for her to showcase her amazing voice.  When she heard about the X-Factor auditions she gathered enough courage to sing for the panel of judges and by the end of her performance they were mesmerized by her. The rest, as they say, is history. She went on to win that season of the show and where she is now you can see on her website.

The video below is the performance that started it all. Just watch, it’s amazing.
