In 2017, “The Greatest Showman” took movie theaters by storm, enthralling audiences with the musical tale of P.T. Barnum, the mastermind behind Barnum and Bailey’s Circus. While the film is somewhat fanciful, mostly shying away from the darker elements of Barnum’s life, the exquisite choreography, vibrant costumes and exuberant vocals all combined to make the song performances truly special.
As a result, many people have gone on to perform covers of these memorable songs. One such cover is this thoroughly charming rendition of “A Million Dreams” by five young boys that went viral.
While most of “The Greatest Showman” takes place during Barnum’s adulthood, it begins when he is a young boy. He meets the little girl who will grow up to be his wife, and he shares with her all of the dreams that he has for his future.
This sounds pretty outlandish since he is just a poor boy with no prospects, but she is caught up in his excitement anyway.
Prior to an appearance on the highly popular “Britain’s Got Talent” competition show, the five boys – Toby, Harry, Oscar, Max and Felix – from the north of England, recorded themselves practicing “A Million Dreams” in a small gym. The microphones were set before them and a feeling of quiet anticipation fell upon the room.
Finally, the young boy in the middle started the song off with a pure tone and perfect pitch. The other boys each got their turn to sing solo before coming together for the chorus to astounding effect. They harmonized perfectly and their youthful yet weighty voices filled the entire room.

In the clip uploaded in June 2018 of the bright-eyed boys’ performance of “A Million Dreams,” from “The Greatest Showman,” their voices melded together beautifully. Those listening were surely reminded of all the possibilities that lie ahead for the youth of this world.
Viewers adored the boys’ version of the musical hit and filled the comments section with words of praise and encouragement.
“Your harmonies are so brilliant! I got goosebumps,” one viewer wrote, while another said: “Those boys are so gifted to have such beautiful voices like angels. They can do perfect harmonies and I can tell that they all have a great passion for music.”
Meanwhile, one eagle-eyed fan spotted a heartwarming sight. “The mirror in the background shows all the proud dads 😂,” the comment read.
The group of boys, who have now dubbed themselves Bring It North, made their way to the “Britain’s Got Talent” stage and managed to snag a place in the semi-finals. There, they performed a slightly different arrangement of “A Million Dreams” that was no less remarkable. Their performance was heightened with dramatic stage lighting and even a floating stage but took nothing away from the inherent talent and efforts of the young boys.
While the boys did not get past the semi-final stage of the competition, they have gone on to bigger and brighter things. Since their television appearances, they have supported groups such as Il Divo and Michael Ball on tour, performed with “X Factor” winners Rak-Su and played the hallowed halls of the Wembley Arena and Royal Albert Hall.
Although these five young lads may not yet be household names, they have made a profound impact on many people who have had the privilege of hearing them sing.
