Once in awhile, an undeniably special talent takes the "Britain's Got Talent" stage and it becomes immediately clear that there's a star standing before the judges' panel. Kathleen Jenkins is one of those people. After performing The Rolling Stones' classic "Wild Horses," Simon Cowell candidly tells Jenkins, "I've been waiting for you all day." Judge David Williams adds, "You’ve got a God-given talent and the world needs to hear it."

What makes Jenkins' "BGT" audition even more memorable is her backstory: a 25-year-old cleaner from Newport in South Wales, she and her husband still live with her parents. And when her teary-eyed father describes the lengths to which he'd go to make her singing dreams come true? Well, you may as well grab the tissues right now. This audition is compelling and emotional from top to bottom.

The Telegraph notes that Jenkins is so special, she just may be the next Susan Boyle. Regardless of how far she advances in the "BGT" competition, it's clear that this shy-mannered woman with a powerhouse set of pipes is just getting started.
