A video of a woman singing Shallow from A Star is Born as part of a social media challenge has gone viral for all the right reasons.


Global (24 February 2020) – Kevin Freshwater, a social media prankster, entertainer and purveyor of comic content has just uncovered an amazing cover of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow while filming a segment called “Finish the Lyrics”.

In a clip that has gone viral on Facebook with more than 26 million views, the comedian is seen approaching strangers in England while asking them to finish the lyrics of popular songs.

Near the end of the video, Freshwater encounters a commuter named Charlotte Awbery.

When Freshwater asks Awbery to complete the lyrics to “Shallow” from “A Star is Born,” the talented singer, who shy at first, proceeds to unleash a Grammy-worthy performance, without even warming up.

Awbery belted out the lyrics: “I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in, I’ll never meet the ground. Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us, we’re far from the shallow now.”

The video has since gone viral and been featured everywhere… even causing the Oscar-winning song off the Star Is Born soundtrack to reenter the Top 40 on iTunes in the United States.

“I was blown away and lost for words,” Freshwater explained.

Freshwater, who has worked with multiple brands to create viral videos in the past, noted that Awbery, who is a professional singer, “seemed like such a genuine and loving person.”

“I’m grateful that I have a platform to be able to showcase her amazing talent to the world,” he revealed.

A star is born, indeed.
