Investigation

To begin our investigation, we first put this video on the Invid tool and extracted its frames. We searched these images on Google reverse image. We found this video uploaded on Britain’s Got Talent’s verified YouTube channel. It can be clearly seen in the video that these two boys did not sing a hymn of Ramayana, but an English song.

According to a report from birminghammail.co.uk, the name of these two boys are Leondre Devries and Charlie Lenehan. Their band is called Bars and Melody. Both sing English songs.

We searched for Leondre Devries and Charlie Lenehan, but nowhere did we find any information that they are both Hindi speakers. We did not find any video anywhere where these two have sung a Hindi song.

We contacted Bars and Melody in this regard via Instagram message. Their social media manager Kenneth Jones told us that “this video is from their first performance on Britain Got Talent. Here, in fact, these two had performed a rap song against bullying, not a Hindi hymn. The video is morphed.”

This video was shared by a Facebook user named Shravan Sain Sain with a false claim. On scanning the user’s account, we found that he is from Mumbai.
