Mind-blowing

A guy who lived in the same dorm as me in 1972 sent this link to me. What it shows is unlike anything I've ever posted on this blog. I've never watched the TV show where the performance occurred; I don't even care for this kind of music. But this is just flat-out amazing:

Agreed - I saw this posted on facebook and "amazing" is the right word for it.

Flipping through stations a few weeks ago, I happened on this show...a heavy set 20 year old man kicked out of his home by his patents for being Gay stood up and performed a similar operatic act...I guess it shows us that in a very diverse world everyone has a talent...these reality shows like this and the Voice are a throwback to The Ted Mack Amateur Hour in the 50's and 60's
