In US news and current events today, a singer-songwriter became an online sensation after a video of her singing in the London Underground went viral after it was posted online.
Online entertainer Kevin Freshwater filmed himself approaching people and asking them to “finish the lyrics” of various songs for a video project on February 13.
Some coyly finished the lyrics, others told him to go away, but Charlotte Awbery, who Freshwater approached in a London tube station, gave the challenge her all.
This footage shows Awberg performing Shallow, a song from the most recent A Star Is Born film.
Awbery, who has over 280,000 followers on Instagram, said she was “completely blown away” by the response to the video. “Thank you all so so much for the response, comments, kind messages and general love from everyone,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
While some people online suggested the video could have been staged, a representative for Freshwater said it was not a planned encounter and happened by chance. Kugan Cassius, who also appears in the video at 18 seconds, told Storyful that Freshwater approached him on the street and it had not been planned.
Storyful has reached out to Charlotte Awbery for comment.
