23 YEAR OLD MAXWELL THORPE STUNS STREET AUDIENCE WITH OPERA SINGING – At first glance you might think that 23 year old Maxwell Thorpe is your typical sports wearing youth; complete with tattoos, an earring and a ferocious looking dog.
However, Maxwell is the perfect personification as to why you should never judge a book by its cover or indeed stereotype people.
In Maxwell’s home town of Chesterfield, Derbyshire he likes nothing more than taking a trip down to his local town centre and delighting the public with his remarkable talent as an opera singer.
Maxwell is not just good, he’s completely amazing and to listen to him sing is an utter joy. He provides renditions of Nessun Dorma and Halleluja which is just incredible and by the amount of money he collects in his box there is little doubt that the public fully appreciate Maxwell’s talent.
This guy really should audition for Britain’s Got Talent for there simply aren’t enough opera singers and whilst opera may not be everyone’s cup of tea it must be appreciated that singing opera takes an infinite amount of dedication and skill.
Whilst many people feel Maxwell should audition he feels that it’s just not for him and he is more than happy to just break into song in the town square and delight members of the public.
His loyal, and very lovable dog, Humphry also likes the attention and as each person places a few coins in Maxwell’s box Humphry gets a good old scratch – just a perfect day.
I can tell you that writing news articles can sometimes be a bit of a depressing occupation; we all know that most news is bad news. However every now and then along comes a story that I am simply compelled to write and do so with such joy in my heart and this is certainly one of those occasion for I relish anything that shows others that there are some truly gifted people in this world.
Maxwell has now garnered a bit of a reputation in his home town and is known affectionately by the locals as ‘Chavarotti’ and as he continues to perform his audience is growing.
The video above has already received over 98,000 views on YouTube and I suspect that as this news article spreads he’ll get an awful lot more – if anyone deserves a little recognition Maxwell is the perfect candidate.
I am sure you will enjoy watching the video as much as I did and agree that Maxwell really is one of a kind.
