As a longtime fan, I‘m thrilled to provide an in-depth look at viral singing sensation Allie Sherlock. This 18-year-old from Ireland first captured hearts with her 2015 busking covers of songs like "Hallelujah" and "Supermarket Flowers". Her soulful voice and skilled guitar-playing were impossible to ignore. Let‘s explore Allie‘s inspirational journey to stardom.
Allie displayed promising musical gifts from a young age. She began busking on Cork streets at just 5 years old! I still vividly remember those early viral videos showcasing her precocious talent. By 11, Allie started sharing YouTube covers which accumulated over 100 million views. Her heartfelt rendition of "Hallelujah" remains my personal favorite with over 80 million views.
Rocket to Fame
Allie‘s big break came in 2017 when she was invited on the Ellen Degeneres Show after Ellen discovered her covers. The 12-year-old‘s stunning performance earned a standing ovation. That same year, Allie won the Music Matters Award for her chart-topping cover of Ed Sheeran’s "Shape of You".
Other career highlights include:
- Performing at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding reception in 2018
- Landing a record deal with Decca Records in 2019 at age 15
- Releasing her hit debut album My World in 2019
- Appearing on James Corden‘s Late Late Show in 2021
Despite her meteoric rise to fame at a young age, Allie has stayed grounded and grateful to her fans.
Now 18, Allie boasts over 4 million YouTube subscribers. She uses her platform for good by supporting charities like Barretstown Children’s Charity. Allie often gives back by performing at benefit concerts.
In 2022, she embarked on her first North American tour which sold out venues in major cities like New York and Los Angeles. I was lucky enough to attend a show in NYC and Allie‘s stage presence was mesmerizing!
She continues to release new singles and work on a sophomore album anticipated later this year. I can‘t wait to hear the new music she‘s been teasing on social media.
