Sup Travellers?! The TV show "Britain's Got Talent" is in full swing and getting more and more heated with each episode. In the video above we meet single mother, Becky O’Brien who doesn't only have a beautiful voice but an incredible story as well.

The 34-year-old deferred her dreams of being a singer to raise her five children. But what’s even more incredible is that O’Brien courageously divorced her abusive husband.

A woman who puts her children first, even in times so bleak, should receive a standing ovation for that alone.

But when O’Brien sang Judy Garland’s “Over The Rainbow,” all the pain that she went through was made visible in a stream of tears. The lyrics, which illustrate the pangs of wanting a better life and feeling as though it is so close, yet so far, were performed beautifully and viscerally by O’Brien. 

It was O’Brien’s 11-year-old son who encouraged her to audition for Britain’s Got Talent. He told her, “Why don’t you show Simon Cowell how it’s done!”

Though it was her oldest boy that pushed Mommy to live out her dreams, it’s her youngest one’s beautiful reaction that really pulled on my heart strings. You can tell these kids love their mommy…and that Mommy loves them right back.

“I was not expecting that. This is why we do this show, to find people like you,” Simon said.

I think her performance was absolutely amazing. Can she go all the way and win the competition? My answer to that is "WHY THE HELL NOT?" Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
