              Seen this audition 10 times and it still gets me. Worst part is that it takes effect on my wife and kids. I’m 30 years old and I still can’t get over my messed up childhood. Hearing this man sing brings back so much pain but relief at the same time that no matter what things can change for the better. Like wade I’m also living proof that you don’t have to live like your past if you had a bad one.

I work two jobs and i’m fourteen, they’re not full time jobs but every little bit helps. I hope some day I can take care of my mom like I would love to now. She’s given up everything for me and my siblings, and it breaks my heart because she deserves to have some things in this world that is just hers. Much love to him and his family. God bless him. <3
