Orphan Thrown Away in Shoe Box Wows on X Factor

Emmanuel Kelly gives a moving performance of John Lennon's "Imagine" on X Factor.

Before the performance on X Factor, this young man held the crowd in complete shock with the story of his tragic beginning.  One of the judges begins the audition with asking  the him his age and he disturbingly answers, “I’m not sure.”

The crowd and the judges held their breath as though there may be a scandal afoot, but there could be nothing further from the truth.  As babies, Emmanuel Kelly and his brother had been put in a shoe box and found by nuns in a war zone in Iraq.  Their mother, an Australian woman, adopted them and raised them in Australia.

The X Factor had the privilege of  having Emmanuel give his rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine.”  Listen to the rest of his disturbing story and his moving performance below.
