Britain Really Does Got Talent

So obviously living in the States I don't watch a whole lot of Britain's Got Talent, mostly because between American Idol, House, ER, and the whole slew of other shows I'm addicted to but only get an hour a week to watch, who has the time? But this evening while I was fixing dinner I had the Ellen Show on, and she played this clip of an amazing 13 year old boy that has the voice of an angel. I normally wouldn't have paid much attention, and I didn't hear the intro so I had no idea what was going on. All I knew was that I was grilling chicken, trying to keep The Smoodge from shoving all her refrigerator magnets UNDER the fridge, when a sound filled my small apartment that made chills run up and down my spine. I went in to see a startlingly young boy singing his proverbial pants off. I stood there hypnotized by this beautiful, pure voice. When he was done, I realized I had tears streaking down my face. I rewound the clip to find out what the heck was going on during my normally funny, stress-free show, and saw this was a 13 year old boy who had been singing since he was 6, and was bullied at school for it. And when asked how he dealt with the bullying, he simply shrugged and stated, "I ...carry on singin'."
