A nurse reduced the Britain’s Got Talent judges to tears at her audition with a song about her time working in a children’s hospital
Beth Porch is a 25-year-old singer living in London.
Currently a paediatric nurse, she regularly plays for the children she looks after at the hospital where she works.
Beth performed an original song inspired by her work, saying: “It’s a difficult job and processing a lot of things that happen on the ward I right songs.
“The song I’ve written today is what I’ve learned about my patients and their families, that’s what inspired this song.”

Following the performance, Alesha Dixon said: “I just want to say thank you so much. What you do puts everything into perspective.
“I was just thinking about my own children, I was choked up the whole time. It was so beautiful. I think you’re really, really special.”
David Walliams added: “We say on this show you’ve got two minutes to change your life and I think you’ve just changed your life but also touched all of our lives with that song.”
Amanda Holden commented: “You have such a difficult job. I don’t know where you find the strength.
“I totally admire you for doing that selflessly but to also have this kind of talent is god given, so you literally are an angel in every way.”
Finally, Simon Cowell said: “Absolutely beautiful song. The lyric is so poignant, you’re a great singer, a great songwriter, a great person so well done.”
With four yeses, Beth sailed through to the next round of the competition.
