South African Belinda Davids has received the call she was waiting for; the call saying she has made it to the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent.


United Kingdom (02 September 2020) – Port Elizabeth singing sensation Belinda Davids’ performance at Britain’s Got Talent will leave you feeling proudly South African. She has been blowing audiences away with her talent and has earned her spot in the semi-finals.

Belinda Davids channelled her inner Whitney Houston for the “Britain’s Got Talent” auditions. Singing the classic “One Moment In Time”, Davids effortlessly flew through the song. As the South African native concluded to a standing ovation, judge Simon Cowell praised the performance as “the moment we’ve been waiting for.”

Belinda Davids was born in Port Elizabeth and began performing professionally at the age of 14. She has never had vocal training and is blessed with a four-octave vocal range, which allows her to sing any genre. Belinda’s inspirations as a child were Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker, Chaka Khan, Donny Hathaway, Michael Jackson and the one artist she honours in every show is Whitney Houston.

As a young girl, one of the very first LPs Davids owned was a song called Hold Me by Teddy Pendergrass and Whitney Houston. The quality and style Whitney portrayed in this song struck a cord, and Davids’ fascination with the icon grew. She sang Whitney’s music at every chance: at family gatherings, talent competitions and to friends while playing on the street. Like many young girls at that time, her bedroom walls were plastered with posters and magazine cut-outs Houston.

Fast forward to 2020 and she has followed her passions far, earning her space on Britain’s Got Talent stage. Belinda Tweeted this week that she has made it to the semi-finals of the show.

Watch all the semi-finalists getting the news below and see who Belinda is up against. To all South Africans living in the UK, Belinda needs you to vote for her so make sure to keep her top of your list.
