The singer who went viral after she was challenged to a game of ‘finish the lyrics’ by a comedian has appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show.
Charlotte Awbery, from Romford, East London, went viral last week after singing her rendition of Shallow from a Star is Born, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, on the London underground.
Yesterday she was invited to sing on Ellen, and sat down for a chat with the TV presenter- who gifted her with a year-long free Tube pass and £10,000.
Charlotte was stopped by prankster Kevin Freshwater while she was on her way to meet a friend, and quickly racked up an international fan base.
