A friend sent me a clip from the British equivalent of American Idol. It shows this nerdy guy, over-weight, bad teeth. But he says he’s always dreamed of singing opera instead of selling cellphones. And watch here what happened in the show.
This guy is so unassuming, to say the least. Imagine how much strength it took for him to go against what other people (and he himself) might have been telling him in order to end up standing on that stage.
Yes, I cried when I watched it. I’m a sucker for such things.
