You could honestly feel the passion from him with each and every note.

He really put his heart and soul into this performance. In fact, the judges were brought to tears by this original moving song.

This story reminds us about a woman named Ashly Williams who also paid tribute to her late mother with a powerful rendition of a Whitney Houston classic.


In 2013, Ashly stepped onto "The X Factor" stage and brought down the house with her incredible performance of Houston's "I Will Always Love You."

During the flashback sequence, she revealed that her mother was murdered when she was only 14 years old. The aspiring singer said that she's currently pursuing her dream in honor of her mother.

Before hitting the stage, she said: “This is the moment that I’ve been waiting for. The moment that my mother would be proud to see me accomplish."

The judges wondered whether Ashly would be able to live up to the expectations of this incredible song. But she showed her true mettle within a few minutes.

After belting out a few lines, she brought herself to tears and also brought everyone to tears - the judges, the viewers, and America.
