Malta’s young singing sensation Destiny Chukunyere, has made it through to the Britain’s Got Talent 2017 semi –finals, following her successful audition in front of Simon Cowell. This means that she is now one of the confirmed acts who will be performing live in the semi final show, which gave fame to artists like Susan Boyle.

The announcement was made last night on an episode of ITV’s hit talent – scouting show. Destiny is only 14 years – old and already has a string of accomplishments under her belt, most notably winning the Junior Eurovision Song Contest for Malta back in 2015.

Despite this, Destiny seems to be on her way to bigger things, in hopes that she secures a recording contract with Cowell himself, who only had words of praise towards the singer’s immense talent.  

A few days ago Destiny and her mother Alexia were invited to speak up on ITV’s popular morning talk show ‘This Morning’. Destiny spoke about a phone call which she received from the president Marie – Louise Coleiro Preca.

Speaking to Destiny, she said that “the idea of auditioning in front of someone as critical as Simon Cowell was very nerve wrecking indeed,” she adds “I was told to wait for quite a long time till I finally made my way up on stage, so the adrenaline was kicking in every minute, till I finally sang Aretha’s Think”.

The Britain’s Got Talent semi – finals are set to begin on ITV on Monday.
