110-Year-old Is A TikTok Singing Sensation, Thanks to Grandson [Video]


  • It took 100 years for Amy Hawkins to fulfill her dream of becoming an entertainer.
  • Hawkins has always wanted to be an entertainer but her mother stopped her from realizing it.
  • An uploaded video of her singing on TikTok has gained 100,000 views from a new generation of audience and fulfilled her dream.

Thanks to her Gen Z great-grandson, Amy Hawkins is fulfilling her dream to be a singer.  It might have taken a century, but this grandma is taking TikTok by storm.

At 7 years-old, Hawkins’ joy was to sing and dance. She dreamed of becoming an entertainer. She started building her dream by becoming a member of a dance troupe that was touring the country.  But then, her dream was cut short by her mom who did not see being a dancer as a respectable profession for a woman.

With the love and support of her four-generation family, the centenarian songstress has not stopped singing even if not professionally.

Her granddaughter Hannah Freeman said, “She’s like a clock, once you wind her up, she won’t stop. She just keeps asking, ‘Would you like another one?’.”

And so, a hundred years later and with the COVID-19 pandemic making her stay at home in Monmouth, South Wales with her family and enabling them to have a deep and loving bond, she is realizing her dream.

When Hawkins’ celebrated her 110th birthday, her great-grandson Sacha videoed her It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, one of Hawkins’ favorite WWI tunes. When they posted it on TikTok as a joke, they did not imagine the overwhelmingly upbeat response!  There were emotional reactions and comments and it has already reached more than 100,000 views!

Freeman said, “Reading the comments, people have been in tears, because they miss their family or [think] about the family they have lost. She thinks that it has been a real lesson for his son Sacha and it restored her faith in humanity especially during this difficult time.

She may be entertaining a new generation of audience but no matter how long it took her to reach her dream, she fulfilled her dream of being an entertainer. Sing on, Amy Hawkins!
