Have any of you heard of Sung-bong Choi?
Well, I had no idea who he was until yesterday, when Kathleen, from Grace Falls Like Rain, commented on my Bachelorette post. After seeing her comment I went on over to her blog to see what was new with her. Her latest post is something I am so glad I read/watched.
Sung-bong Choi is a 22 year old manual worker who took the stage last week on Korea's Got Talent. His voice is beautiful.
What is making him an internet sensation? Like most reality stars, he's got a story. But this one breaks my heart. He was orphaned at five years old, abused by orphanage workers, ran away, and lived on his own ever since. To get by, he lived in public bathrooms and sold energy drinks and gum on the street.
His story, combined with his amazing voice, reduced the judges and audience to tears.
(Of course, it reduced me to tears as well, but that should come as no surprise to y'all!)
Can Americans vote for Korea's Got Talent?
Because if so, Sung-bong Choi has got a fan in me :-)
Much love,Future Mama
