20 Photos Of Reflections That Will Blow You Away

“Sometimes there is so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can’t take it.”

These 20 photos could be ordinary scenes if it weren’t for the magnificent reflections in ponds, puddles, and even cups of coffee! After seeing them, you might find yourself looking at your surroundings in a whole new way.

She Quietly Walked Onstage To Sing…And Quickly Amazed The Crowd With Her Voice

When an international version of The Voice welcomed this quiet girl onstage, no one knew what to expect. She was very young and clearly very nervous. Anything could have happened. Once the music started, though, something clicked.

She started singing in the most beautiful voice imaginable. She brought tears to her family’s eyes and won over the judges almost instantly.

You might not understand her language or style of song, but you can’t deny her talent. WOW.

This little girl was given the chance to do something incredible… and she delivered in a big, big way. Congrats!

Just ask the people who were in the right place at the right time when they walked through Spain’s Plaça de Sant Roc back on May 19, 2012.

When a little girl dropped some money into a cellist’s hat, passersby were treated to a spectacle that left everyone singing.
