When Reuben Gray made it through the long process and had the opportunity to audition for the judges on ‘Britain’s Got Talent,’ he was thrilled. But unfortunately, a tiny piece of his happiness was missing. Reuben was only sixteen years old at the time of his audition and though he was sure to gain plenty of fans from the show, his biggest fan, his father, was not able to attend the once-in-a-lifetime performance.

But, judge Simon Cowell had planned a huge surprise in store for the young singer/songwriter. Before he took a seat at the piano to play his original song, called “Lifeline,” Simon had him take a look into the audience. There, next to his mother, was Reuben’s father. On that day, everything was exactly as it should have been.

Watch Reuben’s reaction to the surprise and his wonderful performance, in the video below! We hope you enjoy it and please like and share the post with family and friends.
