You’ll Be Inspired by This “American Idol” Audition!

I’ve been watching American Idol this season, and so far I am amazed at how talented the contestants are! Although I really don’t like judge Nicki Minaj, I didn’t want her to stop me from enjoying the show. The following audition, by Lazaro Arbos, is so touching, I know you will be inspired by his story!

Isn’t it amazing what God can do though someone’s struggle and hardship? I pray that he goes far in this competition!

Have you ever pursued your dream even though the odds were against you, like Lazaro did? I’m so impressed by his courage!

    <3 Beautiful voice. I want to be his friend. If I went to the same school he did, I would've been there for him. I don't find that stuttering weird at all. I don't know why he didn't have a lot of friends because you can tell how sweet and loving he is. <3

    Its amazing that he can sing with out stuttering! Does anyone know why the stutter doesn’t effect his singing?

      When I talk with him (he’s my friend from my hometown) he basically says that the stutter is only with his speech because it’s the sentence formation that confuses him. Music is something he’s comfortable with and understands, which is why he doesn’t stutter while singing 🙂

    Oh my gosh! He is adorable. He literally made me cry. I’m so glad he’s overcome this though. It’s so sad that people were mean to him, but I’m glad he’s stronger than them. 🙂 Being honest and since its a girl site I can say this – i would date him. 🙂 any guy who is sweet and ok with crying is good in my book.
