Another day, another overnight internet sensation. This time a commuter on London’s Underground has found viral fame after singing a stunning rendition of Lady Gaga’s Shallow from A Star Is Born.
The woman, Charlotte Awbery, was approached on the Tube by online talkshow host Kevin Freshwater during a game called “Finish the lyrics” where he gets unsuspecting members of the public to finish the lyrics to different songs.
But, as it turns out, Awbery is a professional singer and songwriter and delivered a stunning rendition worthy of Lady Gaga herself. Check it out below:
This guy challenged strangers to ‘finish the lyrics’ and this woman passing by started belting out Shallow like she was performing at the Oscars, literally flawless 😭

And now Awbery has found a new legion of online fans.
“This guy challenged strangers to ‘finish the lyrics’ and this woman passing by started belting out Shallow like she was performing at the Oscars, literally flawless,” wrote one.
“She was amazing. My dog even stopped what he was doing to watch, and he’s not big on videos LOL,” penned another.
While another fan added: “The lady at the end gave me goosebumps. Amazing voice.”
However, as the video below reveals, Freshwater’s vox pops aren’t always as successful.
