Britain's Got Talent star Henry Hall has sadly passed away. The singer was 86 when he died.

Henry reached the final of the ITV talent contest two years ago. He was one half of the singing duo The Pensionalities, alongside his friend Malcom White.

Tributes have been rolling in after it was confirmed Henry had passed away. He died peacefully at his home in Doncaster on April 28.

His obituary colorfully described him: "In both life and death, Henry definitely did it 'his way!'"

The obit continued, "He died peacefully at home, as he wished, with his family. He lived an extraordinary life and was known to a great many people as H from Cusworth’s Motorcycles and latterly half of The Pensionalities from Britain's Got Talent."

It concluded, "He was loved by many, forgotten by none and will be greatly missed by all."

His approach to life carried over into his funeral. Mourners at Hall's funeral were asked to wear bright colors rather than black.

In 2017, Henry and his lifelong friend Malcom White won over audiences in their Britain's Got Talent audition. Simon Cowell compared them to Ant and Dec as they got a standing ovation at their first audition.

They formed performed classic big band hits under the name The Pensioniares for five years. They then changed their name to The Pensionalities for legal reasons as they tried out for Britain's Got Talent.

The Pensionalities won the public vote of their semi-final and earned a place in the finale. The duo eventually finished in fifth place in the series, which was won by musician Tokio Myers

Please pray for his family as they mourn his passing. May God comfort them in their loss.
