      1. All is well with me, thanks! Hope all is well with you. But in looking at the bigger picture for #7 especially, I think that was the part that made me happy because yes, they did prejudge him by his looks but then realized how limited they were by doing that! It was like he blossomed! I can’t believe his parents had never heard him sing either. Amazing. I love those kind of feel good stories that have such depth and emotion to them. I’m glad you shared all of the videos! ♥

  1. I love this post! I’ve shared Susan Boyles during a MusicMonday before, she is always one of my favourites because I remember watching her for the first time and thinking she doesn’t look like a singer myself.

    I loved the goth. He really took me by surprise! (Just like Susan). He sent shivers down my spine – in a good way of course lol

    Here is mine: (Yep, I’m on a roll this week! lol)

    I have a soft, mushy spot for 60s and 70s rock and roll. That was a pretty solid Dream On cover by Travis Cormier. Steven Tyler is a tough act to follow.
    There was a kid named Sawyer Fredericks on The Voice a couple of years ago who I was really impressed with. If you don’t remember him, you should check him out.
    Keep the music coming.

    1. I thought so too! I love Travis Cormier’s cover of Simple Man too. You should check that out. Loved.

      I’ll check out Sawyer Fredericks. I haven’t really been watching the new seasons which explains why the name doesn’t ring a bell. Thanks for the rec, Michael! 👍🎸💜

    Is it bad that I’ve seen all of these? Landau is my favorite because man the looks he was getting but then he opened up with that Sinatra incarnation and wow just wow. Can’t wait for part 2!

    1. They’re all popular I suppose. Most of these people went on to win as well! Amazing talent. Landau is a fave, but love them all. I know my grandpa would’ve loved seeing Landau. His personality is so sweet too. I never tire of watching these. Glad you enjoyed! 😉💜

    I love, love, love watching new talent when it really causes ‘wow’ moments for the audience and judges. I think that’s what makes those talent shows so amazing. I’m like you Jen, I can watch them over and over and still get enough. There are so many good ones. I’m looking forward to your second post for sure! 🙂

    Holy music! I’ve never heard of these singers.Wow! To top it off, I read a few minutes ago that Kendrick Lamar won a Pulitzer! Brilliant. Poetic justice!
