In the video, Allie is situated in the middle of a hustling and bustling street in Ireland and belts out the ballad with so much passion, while hitting all the right notes to the song. The lyrics are already so powerful since Sheeran’s mom had written them in memory of her own mother (the singer’s grandma). So when you pair the sentiments of the song with Allie’s voice, you get such a soulful and touching performance.
She uploaded this video on Youtube sometime in June, and since then she’s been garnering so many positive reviews. We’re sure she couldn’t be happier!
Although the girl is just 12-years-old, her voice sounds so mature and her presence is felt throughout the entire performance. Allie’s form of singing is called busking, and she’s become a popular busker on Grafton Street in Ireland; she’s now a local celebrity.
Since she has been so acknowledged online and in her local hometown, Allie has been offered to make appearances on shows like The Ellen Show. The opportunity was turned down because her parents feel that she is just a 12-year-old girl who enjoys some busking. Allie herself doesn’t know where she’d like to take this passion for singing since she says that it’s just a hobby.
Watch the beautiful performance below! Please like and share it with family and friends.
