Get him on the X Factor! Busker’s amazing rendition of John Legend’s ‘All of me’ is hitting all the high notes


A young busker from Dukinfield has wowed more than 130,000 strangers with his incredible rendition of ‘All of me’ by John Legend.

Tom Sumner was performing the hit single in Market Street, Manchester, when his impressive vocals were filmed by a passerby and subsequently uploaded to social media.

The 22-year-old is now hoping to enter X Factor and secure a record deal.


Impressed: Tom Sumner was busking in Manchester when his performance was captured by a passerby

In the video, Sumner is seen singing on the busy shopping street.
Wrapped up against the cold the weather, he seems to be in his own world as he performs the love song.
Several passersby are seen stopping to drop change into his bucket.
One of these passersby stopped to capture his performance.
Wendy Bestie Jarvis first posted the video of Sumner’s performance on her personal Facebook page on January 23.

She wrote: ‘Nice to see a bit of genuine talent on Market Street this morning (And I’m referring to his voice).

‘No idea who he is but this definitely deserves a “share”. I just gave him my lunch money!’

Her friends and members of the public obviously agreed as the video has since had more than 130,000 views on Facebook alone.

Sumner, who works as a restaurant recruiter at Tastecard, has since gone on to start his own Facebook fan page.
He told Manchester Evening News: ‘I have been busking for ten years now, I have been doing it for quite a while.
‘I didn’t even know it had gone viral. My sister messaged me after she saw it on Wednesday.
‘I am going to try and enter the X Factor next year.’
He is also said to be hoping for a record deal having previously been signed to Rio Ferdinand’s White Chalk Records.
But a career in music could come sooner than expected as people are already offering to book the busker for performances via Facebook.
