Another one of the many reasons I’m looking forward to X Factor, US edition. Talk about a touching story..
Emmanuel Kelly auditioned for X Factor overseas and had quite the life experience to share with the world. When asked his age, he said “I don’t really know”. With puzzled looks in the audience he begins to tell his life struggles. He was born in a War Zone of Iraq and was found in a shoebox with his brother. They were taken to an orphanage where an angel in disguise adopted them both and gave them a great life in Australia. They have missing limbs but that didn’t take a way for their sprits.
Nor, did it take away from Emmanuel’s dream to one day be a star. He does a great rendition of John Lennon’s smash hit – Imagine.
So moving, watch his full audition below. Be thankful for what you have, it doesn’t really hit home until you see the difficult lives of others to appreciate how fortunate you truly are.
