I happened to watch America’s Got Talent (which is far poorer version) of Britain’s Got Talent.
But anyway… I watched this guy, Paul Leti.
What an incredible audition! His voice and his story… moved everyone there to a standing ovation.
He said he served in the US army and was stationed in Afghanistan.
When his patrol where scared or missed home they asked him to sing.
During his audition, you understand why. Yoh!
I think his voice is so soulful… but I really liked his presence too.
It was vulnerable.
It was that of that “arrogance” and “showmanship confidence” of the pop industry.
This was a guy, who had seen horrible things in the arm.
Had lived in a place of unrest.
And used singing to bring calm to his own soul and others.
Watch the clip and be inspired!
