One of the incredible things about the Internet is that it provides a worldwide audience of millions to singers who might have toiled unheralded in their own countries. These videos show just some of the talents that have been shared with me, or that I’ve discovered on the web. Relax, turn up the volume and enjoy these incredible voice masters, all of whom are from outside the USA.

Liam McNally

Only 14 years old, wide-eyed Liam McNally manages to put a ton of emotion in his rendition of Danny Boy for Britain’s Got Talent. His voice is luminous and angelic, an achievement, considering he has no formal training. Sadly, his instrument will last only until puberty lowers it. Though he placed in the finals, the winner that year was a group of gymnastic performers.

Sung-Bong Choi

The story of this homeless young man is more the draw here, as he relates it quietly and matter-of-factly on Korea’s Got Talent. The singing isn’t bad either but the choice of song was extraordinary. It brought the judges and audience to tears. He’s the favorite to win the competition, which is still going on.

Charice Pempengco

Only 15-years old at the time, Charice Pempengco elicits cheers and a standing ovation from the panel on this Korean TV show because of her big, expressive voice. She’s since appeared in the U.S. on the Ellen Degeneres show and on Glee, and has become a star in her native Philippines. Check out her home page for more information, videos and music.

Michael Gregorio

Some people can sing, others play guitar and some can do both. But Frenchman Michael Gregorio can sing like an electric guitar. He also performs regular songs. For more information, visit his home page, which is only French. He’s won a few singing competitions and dubbed Gnomeo in the French version of the cartoon Gnomeo and Juliet.

Susan Boyle

This is my favorite. A plain but spunky 47-year-old elicits disdain and mockery from the audience when she walks out on Britain’s Got Talent. No one is laughing when she starts singing “I Dreamed a Dream.” She eventually got second place in the competition behind a dance troupe. Since that time, she has sung with her idol, Elaine Page, and achieved fame, fortune and a bit of glamour.

There's nothing more inspirational then a good "cinderella" story. I myself am amazed at Susan Boyle's road to fame. She certainly has shown everyone that a dream can become reality if you only believe and pursue.

That's one of the reasons she's my favorite.
