Twenty years ago, he was devastated by the loss of his 6 youngest siblings in a horrific car crash. Now Toby Willis is the father of 12 phenomenally talented children, who recently stunned judges with their performance on NBC's America's Got Talent.
Willis is a man who didn't let the horror of his past define his future. He didn't let fear govern his life. Instead, he and his wife, Brenda devoted their lives to their children, who range from a beautiful 21-year-old all the way down to an adorable 3-year-old. Every child is incredibly gifted. And they have completely captured hearts across America.
These 14 individuals remind us that no matter what, life is worth living, and living to the fullest.
I remember reading about that terrible accident. Thanks be to God that the family was able to go on and find love and joy.
Not any more. Maybe back when there were 3 or 4 channels that was possible.
They did wonderful job. I hope they go far.
Very well done.
Saw them week ago.
Very good and the judges tried to slice off the eldest for a standalone, or alluded to that as a direction.
Was this the wreck that eventuated in the imprisonment of then-governor George Ryan in Illinois. If I recall, the driver was a preacher, Scott Willis.
And they have completely captured ALL hearts across America.
But it doesn't, thus it is possible to completely capture hearts across America, and judging from their Facebook page it appears they have even captured hearts in New Zealand & Australia as well. They captured my heart tonight. I thought they were perfect. Talented, entertaining, and a beautiful family. All 14 of them.
A beautiful family - like the Duggars, all the kids’ names seem to start with “J.”
LOVE what they did to that song!!!! What a WHOLESOME family!!
BUMP Thanks for posting!
What a wonderful family & so talented.
