Brendan MacFarlane is an 11 year boy from Perth who sings Ray Charles songs on YouTube. He’s also taking his mother to court, in order to follow the well trodden path to reality show stardom.
Brendan has a spot on US TV show “Maury’s Most Talented Kids”. Brendan lives with his Dad, but his passport lives with his Mum. And, of course Brendan needs his passport to attend filming of the talent show in New York. Hence the court action.
Apparently, the BBC have reported that Brendan’s mother failed to appear in court due to an “upset stomach” – and it will be heard again next month.
