One Of The Most Touching Things We've Ever Seen!

| Filed under: Mel BAustraliasticInspirationX Factor

Emmanuel Kelly has such an unbelievably touching story. He and his brother were survivors of chemical warfare in Iraq. He's not exactly sure how old he is, but he DOES have one amazing voice.

We cried our eyes out watching this! We have a feeling U will too.

Check out the extremely moving X Factor Australia audition above.

    This kids has an amazing voice. His mother is a remarkable women, not only has she taken in both Emmanuel and his brother, she also took in 2 Indian Siamese twins connected via the head. After she brought the twins back they underwent separation and both girls are growing up fast. His brother really enjoyed playing soccer. These guys were seen on a few different shows during the twins ordeal with there mother.

    I don't want to sound insensitive (but I probably will; and I'm not aiming my comment at him, its just in general) have you ever noticed that on almost all of these "competition" shows the contestants always have some like sob story, or something tramatic or a hardship they have had to face- like its never just your average run of the mill person trying to win. Side note; I think this Kid has an awesome voice- and am glad that his brother and him are alright.

    I hope he wins… not because of what happened in his life, but because he has such a beautiful voice.

    You go man! so much strength to keep going. His mom is a great lady to raise him and his bro. Hope he takes it all. Somebody to look up to.

    That is seriously a beautiful story and his mom is just an amazing human. He has a lovely voice and I hope he goes far.

    I bawled my eyes out- He has a gorgeous voice and I'm really excited to have the vocal coaches get to him- He needs a little fine tuning and help with his control but he's got such potential- and his mother is one of those beautiful people

    people playing on others heartstrings to buy support.. i wont deny the guy could sing, but to be able to keep up in todays music industry takes an extremely physical toll even on the most fittest of singers…
    And i personally dont think he will be able to…

    Stop turning these reality shows into pity parties!

    Although his story is heartbreaking, I beg to differ on the quality of his voice. I personally do not think he has a great voice. He has an OK voice, but it is not great.

    awww i think hes soo cute and inspirational! as well as his brother. i would date either of those cuties despite theyre physical disability!

    I was lucky enough to be in the audience for this audition. It was truly breath taking, i mean words cant begin to explain how we felt when he sang. Literally everyone screamed or yelled as soon as he sang the first sentence. He, alone, changed the atmosphere in the arena that night.
