Viral subway singer Charlotte Awbery stops by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Wednesday.
Awbery hit headlines around the world when she was stopped in the London Tube by Kevin Freshwater, who asked her to finish the lyrics to Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” from “A Star is Born” for his “Finish the Lyric” skit.
The video has since had more than 60 million views, got “Shallow” back on the iTunes charts and garnered Awbery over 400,000 followers, including Ariana Grande.
Awbery performs the smash hit on “Ellen”, before chatting to the talk-show host about her sudden fame.
The singer, from Essex, U.K., gushes: “I’m absolutely overwhelmed with all of this.”
She explains how she’s been singing in pubs and at weddings, among other things, for 15 years, telling DeGeneres how her father advises her to never give up singing.
