Boxing champion Mary Kom has made history by breaking world records and taking home a sixth gold medal at the World Championship, but boxing is not Mary Kom's only talent. Nobody knew this fierce woman's additional hidden talent until her singing video went viral in 2019. The footage is resurfacing again on the microblogging site, and Twitterati couldn't stop themselves.

Although the champion has consistently displayed her talent in the ring, she gave the world a sneak preview of her singing abilities. When Kom performed What's Up by the American rock group 4 Non-Blondes at the 2019 GoaFest, a three-day annual celebration of the best works of advertising and media in India, her fans were in wonder.
