It’s hard to please Simon Cowell. But two boys — known as Bars and Melody — impressed him enough that he hit the Golden Buzzer for them on Britain’s Got Talent.

Charlie and Leondre performed an emotional anti-bullying song, “Hopeful,” for their audition. Deondre, who wrote the lyrics, also shared his story about being bullied in primary school and then standing up to the bully to resolve the situation.

He now goes to another school. His friend, Charlie, said the two became brothers after they met.

The audition was aired back in May, but the video is now going viral again.
