It talks to the heart

Wow! It's amazing what natural talent can survive. It talks to the heart. He started out, through no fault of his own, as an orphan. Like any entrepreneur, someone with a goal and determination can do anything, even if it appears like they have no control over their own lives. You can start out with nothing and end up with a fortune. You just have to have faith, take responsibility, and remember that nothing good can happen if you don't at least try. Even to one so young.

Just amazing! A king of "ness"?

Yes, truly amazing to realize that a young guy like him who suffered much is able to reach this perfection! It was truly moving to watch him singing and the judges too! Tears of joy were abundant in the audience. I shared this video with all my friends. I wish we all could react the same way in our lives: growing and reaching higher and higher!

WOW!!!! That was amazing!!!! Imagine where he came from, and I am sure that wasn't the last Korea saw of him!!!!! I am sure that he will go far!!! If someone who went through SO much can aspire and make something of himself, than WE who live in America and have so much, we should aspire to greatness (spiritually and mentally) as well!!!!

Awesomely Beautiful!! Bravo!!

Amazing! ..and to think society threw away this precious soul like so much garbage. But HaShem preserved and protected him all his days until now. I'm happy for him that he was offered voice lessons. Blessings on him, he is one of those of which Torah speaks, that we should care for them. Blessings on that woman who offered to help. Shalom.

Its the way He worked his way up on his own

I watched it and I cried. I felt for him. I felt his suffering. Its like watching a little child take his first few steps only more. He took a life that has thrown him only cruelty and hardship and made something out of it. He did not give up, get depressed, and or mess up. He took his life into his own hands. He followed his dream. And when you see something like that it touches you. You listen and know that Its the essence of him that is singing. Its an expression of longing and an achievement that he truly did. And after I watched him, his face deadpan due to too much suffering all I wanted to do was give him a Big Hug!!
