"New Susan Boyle" Sings Nursery Rhymes Like You've Never Heard Them Before


Britian’s Got Talent, the very same talent show that gave us Susan Boyle, has turned up another beautiful voice — but this time, the lyrics being sung are meant for children’s ears. Yet somehow, Glasgow resident Edward Reid has found a way to make nursery rhymes sexy.

The 35-year-old drama teacher performed a medley of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,” “Humpty Dumpty,” and other similar tunes to a roaring crowd this past Saturday. As for Reid’s potential star power, it might be hard to break out of the “soulful children’s songs” mold. One of the show’s judges put it this way: “I don’t know what’s going to happen to you after this competition, but I can definitely see you getting booked for Elton John’s child’s first birthday party.” Susan-Boyle-in-the-making or not, you’ve got to hand it to a man who can bring the house down to “If You’re Happy And You Know It Clap Your Hands.”
