BIRMINGHAM, England, March 1 (UPI) -- A British 78-year-old great-grandmother with an unusual talent for rapping entertained the ambulance crew carrying her to a hospital by spitting rhymes.

Norma Clarke, 78, a Birmingham, England resident and professed Dr. Dre fan, was being driven to a hospital after suffering a nosebleed last month when one of the paramedics recognized her from her 2007 appearance on Britain's Got Talent.

Clarke recounted her experience with the TV show and performed one of her raps in the back of the ambulance while her grandson, Jordan Lynam, recorded her with his phone.

The video, which Lynam posted to Facebook, shows the grandmother rapping about what she described as a true story about a recent altercation with a rude shopkeeper.
