Emmanuel Kelly - An International Symbol of Courage

My girlfriend showed me this, and while Captain Captain Industries may be a weird spot for "The X Factor" to show up, we're certainly all for awe-inspiring stories.

Emmanuel Kelly is an Iraqi-Australian victim of chemical warfare. He doesn't know how old he is, but his family assumes he's around 17. He was found limbless in a shoebox with his brother, and was taken in by an orphanage. Watch as the judges and audience are blown away by Emmanuel's courageous journey as he performs John Lennon's "Imagine".

  1. Excellent song pick, great interpretation. I just hope people will manage to drop the pity and accept him for the talent alone. He could develop much better, he's got the talent.
