18-Year-Old Sophie Brings Judges To Their Feet With 'You'll Never Walk Alone'

18-year-old Sophie surprised the judges with her unique song selection of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ on All Together Now. ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ was originally a show tune from the musical Carousel. Talented composers Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein wrote the song in 1945.

In later years, other artists lent their vocals to the tune and gave it mainstream media attention. Elvis Presley released his rendition of the single in 1967 and even titled his album after the song. The powerful lyrics remind us all that we are never truly alone.

“When you walk through a storm hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of a storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never, ever walk alone.”

Today, college student Sophie is lending her voice to the famous tune as she competes on All Together Now. The singing show is a BBC program that features a panel of 100 judges who all have a musical background. The panel includes performers, producers, and other experts in the music industry.

Once an artist starts performing, the 100 can turn their light on, stand up and sing along. The contestant with the highest amount of lights from that round will move on in the competition. Sophie’s song choice was an unlikely pick for someone her age, but it definitely moved some of the judges.
