Due to overwhelming popular demand, I have added Emmanuel Kelly’s return to the Grand Final episode of X Factor to the blog. He joins the top 12 and performs the song that made him a worldwide sensation “Imagine”.
It was a spine-tingling emotional rendition of John Lennon’s Imagine on Australia’s X Factor with Emmanuel Kelly on Monday night, the boy from Iraq who was orphaned with his brother, both with severe deformities have won the hearts of the Aussie crowd. Defying all odds, and left for dead in a shoebox by the side of the road in war torn Middle East, Emmanuel took to the stage and sang his life away – Ronan Keating, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Guy Sebastian and Spice Girl Mel B moved to tears. His story a tale of survival, a remarkable voice, a wonderful performance.
