Golden Buzzer Winner Barry D'Arcy Performs 'Wind Beneath My Wings'

Golden buzzer winner Barry D’Arcy returns to the Ireland’s Got Talent stage for a performance of ‘Wind Beneath My Wings.’


When we first met Barry, this ‘miracle man’ won over the audience and judges with his emotional backstory and incredible voice. At one time, Barry thought he might never walk again.

After suffering from a herniated disc, Barry awoke one day and fell flat on the floor. He did not have control of his legs. "I was paralysed from the waist down. They gave me a fifty-fifty chance of ever walking again, and I took it.”

But Barry overcame all of the odds to stand on the Ireland’s Got Talent stage. That’s when he belted out the iconic lyrics of the Elvis Presley song 'The Wonder of You.’ Judge Louis was so impressed with the performance that he pressed the golden buzzer, sending Barry straight through to the next round.

Now, Barry is back for a semi-final performance of the Bette Midler classic ‘Wind Beneath My Wings.’

“So I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.”

When the choir stepped in behind Barry, I knew this was going to be a moment to remember. Just listen as they all sing their hearts out to the beloved chorus.

“Did you ever know that you're my hero,
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.”

Barry has certainly made an impression on this talent competition and I look forward to watching this man continue to shine.
