'A Change Is Gonna Come’ Audition Earns Golden Buzzer

42-year-old Lifford Shillingford gave up the spotlight years ago. He was a talented performer with the hit UK band Artful Dodger and even toured with the guys. But now, Lifford is ready to give his dream another shot and he's turning to the Britain's Got Talent stage.


Just listen as he performs the most amazing rendition of 'A Change Is Gonna Come' from Sam Cooke. Lifford put so much heart and soul into this performance and it truly comes through in his voice. It's obvious this man is meant to be on the stage and I'm so glad that he's continuing to follow his dreams.

He easily earned a standing ovation, but what really surprised me is when judge Alesha pressed her golden buzzer sending Lifford straight through to the semi-finals. Lifford gave this audition his all and it truly paid off big time. I can't wait to see him during the live shows!
