Andrea Begley- Visually Impaired Singer On The Voice UK Season 2

April 2, 2013

Last year, I really enjoyed The Voice. Why? Because, in the beginning at least, it is based on the beauty of voices, not faces. It is based on talent and nothing but talent.

I didn’t know that series 2 was starting until I saw a little clip on TV on Saturday night. Unfortunately, I quickly forgot all about it.

That was until I found this Tweet in my timeline this morning:

A quick search revealed that Andrea Begley, 26, is the niece of country star Philomena.

What glaucoma makes her lack in eyesight, she makes up for several times over in both voice and song choice. Readers, I think The Voice may just have found its very own Susan Boyle.

I will be following Andrea’s progress with interest. She has my very best wishes for the competition.

For those who missed it, here’s her audition:

That, readers, is what I call DisAbility.
