Meghan and Harry’s preacher opens Britain’s Got Talent finale
JUST when you thought he’d gone away following his power of love royal wedding message… he pops up again at last night’s Britain’s Got Talent finale.
Bishop Michael Curry, whose sermon moved 18million viewers to both smiles and eye-rolling disbelief at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, gave a special blessing to the finalists.
‘Thank you for what you are doing. Thank you to the contestants who offer yourselves and share your talent and your gifts with the rest of us. You actually help to bring some joy and happiness,’ he said in a recording.
Recalling the passion of his power of love speech — which had the biggest Twitter reaction at the royal wedding — the 65-year-old head of the Episcopal Church, who hails from Chicago, added: ‘So, thank you, God bless you, God keep you and may God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.’
His words added inspiration for the 11 finalists competing for a £250,000 prize and the chance to perform at November’s Royal Variety Performance.
The line-up included comedian Robert White, singers B Positive Choir, The D-Day Darlings, Donchez Dacres, Calum Courtney, Gruffydd Wyn Roberts, Tim and Jack Goodacre and Micky P Kerr; dance group DVJ and acrobatic troupe Giant Brothers.
But it was disabled comedian Lee Ridley, 37, — Lost Voice Guy — whose witty one-liners, delivered through a tablet synthesiser who took the title.
