Sirine Jahangir has been singing, writing, and performing music since she was a little girl. She lost all her vision in one eye by the time she turned 5, so now the 14-year-old uses her gift “as a way to — not escape, but to help me through.”
Not only did her passion get her through some difficult times, but it also brought her to the “Britain’s Got Talent” stage, where she blew everyone away with her performance.
Sirine has a rare condition that left her completely blind by the time she was 10 years old. While her parents and doctors have tried to find treatments for her, there isn’t much they can do.
So her parents focused on helping her adjust to her new life, which was when her dad said she was first introduced to music.
I remember one day, we were driving in the car. This is about when she was getting to the stage where she couldn’t look out the window anymore to see things, and I didn’t know what to do, and I just put the music on really loud. She just started singing in the car, and she was so happy. And then she just found happiness every time you put music on.
It didn’t take long for them to realize Sirine has tremendous talent! When she appeared on “Britain’s Got Talent,” she told everyone just how much her passion means to her.
“I guess music is my vision,” she said. “That’s just what I live by, and music is my thing.”
Then she headed over to the piano, where she played an effortless melody and sang beautifully enough to bring the audience to tears!
Unsurprisingly to everyone but Sirine, all four judges voted her into the next round of the competition!
Afterward, she said, “I can’t even say it’s a dream come true, because I didn’t even dream of it at any point… I never thought that would be realistic in my life.”
Looks like it’s time for Sirine to dream bigger! No matter where the competition ends up taking her, we have no doubt this is just the beginning of her music career.
