Young Man Sings Lionel Ritchie’s “Hello” & It Sounds Like It Was Written For Him.

One of the most amazing things about music is that it can really convey the innermost feelings of the person performing it.

Whether we’re experiencing love, loss, or something in between, music can often be a great accompaniment to our celebrations or a salve for our wounds. It’s something 20-year-old singer Joseph O’Brien knows well.

When the handsome singer stepped onto the “America’s Got Talent” stage, the judges started off with their usual pleasantries. “Who are you here with today?” Heidi Klum asked.

When Joseph said he was on his own, Klum followed up with a question about his love life and whether or not he had a partner, to which he surprisingly said no. More surprising still was the fact that he then revealed that he’d never even kissed anyone before! Needless to say, everyone was pretty stunned.

No one could believe it looking at him, and when they heard his incredible voice, their confusion was compounded. What was clear through his amazing rendition of Lionel Richie’s “Hello” was that there was a sense of longing in him that he expressed through music.

As is to be expected, you can hear some ladies cheering him on as he pulls off the subdued but wonderful performance. The piano accompaniment really drove it all home because who doesn’t love a multitalented artist?
