bullied

We can all take a lesson from this incredible little boy; he teaches us that we should have no shame in who we are and to be proud of our uniqueness. He’s a 12-year-old singer named Reuben de Maid from Cardiff, UK and he was once bullied for being who he is.

Reuben is from the Llandaff district in Cardiff and loves being in the spotlight. He has a huge personality, loves wearing makeup, and gets a thrill from being on stage.

Reuben caught the attention of Ellen Degeneres and she absolutely fell in love with the talented young singer. We can’t blame her one bit — his voice is incredible.

“I absolutely love this kid from Wales – his voice, his character, his uniqueness, all of it,” Ellen said on her Facebook page.

Ellen invited Reuben to be a guest on her popular talk show; of course, he accepted. The 12-year-old performed a beautiful cover of the remarkable song “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going” from the movie Dreamgirls.

Not only is his performance absolutely breathtaking, but the interview that Ellen does with him afterward is worth watching. He has quite the personality and speaks about the days when he was bullied for being who he is.
