It is a little old but the story is timeless. This kid was on his own since he was 5 years old! God granted him a huge voice and, well, see for yourself.
I really, really, really hope this is true. Not that I want any kid to go through what this kid describes, but that my tendency toward kindness not be beaten back into cynicism (I did the best checking I could and did not see anything to gainsay his story).
Apparently he finished 2nd but his yt page has 39 million "likes" -- 39 million and 1 if you add mine.

He did attend Daejun Arts High Shcool and received some professional training but as you can imagine, for a homeless kid with nowhere to live, perfect attendance would have been impossible.
Thanks for the gift.

I think that makes it even more amazing. This is a kid who saw music — real music, not that nonsense cRap — as an escape, not necessarily a ticket out of the street..
But it looks like it was that ticket after all.
I hope he succeeds beyond his wildest dreams.
I love that guy, he’s my hero :)
Thank you for sharing that link.
