Emmanuel Kelly X Factor Audition 2011 SPANISH ENGLISH - FULL

Uploaded by 99thminer on 30.10.2011

Welcome back to the X Factor
As the holding room starts to thin
many are leaving with their dreams in tatters
but for our next contestant
the opportunity to chase that dream is all he ever wanted
I'm Emmanuel, I'm 17 years of age
and I live in Australia, originally from Iraq
I'm auditioning for X Factor because the dream is to...
become a professional singer and I definitely want to be the best
At boarding school I sing every day, every night
My mates say, you know, "what are you singing mate?"
"just shush, we're trying to concentrate here" so, yeah!
If I won the X Factor? O my God!
words can't even describe it!
-Hey man! -How are you doing?
-What's your name? -Emmanuel
Emmanuel, so who's here with you today?
My mum, my cousin, my auntie and my brother
How old are you?
Uh, well, actually I'm not exactly sure...
When I was originally found in Iraq, in an orphanage, my mum found me
I was born with no birth certificate no passport, nothing
My story is that I was born in the middle of a war zone
my brother and I were found by the nuns in a box in the park, in a shoe box
they brought me to the orphanage, we would hear shots...
noises that we didn't understand
It was like looking at an angel when mum, Moira Kelly
walked through the orphanage door
She brought us both to Australia for surgery originally
and then, um... sort of mum fell in love with both of us
My hero would have to be my mother
she worked very, very hard, extremely hard to change my life hugely
You know, some people would say I was a man without an identity
but with my mother and with my brother I believe that I can do this, you know
-Wow! good on you man -Thank you
Good on you man
So what are you going to sing?
I am going to sing "Imagine" by John Lennon
Beautiful, wow! O God!
-Good luck mate -Thank you
Imagine there's no heaven
it's easy if you try
no hell bellow us
above us only sky
Imagine all the people
living for today
Imagine there's no countries
it isn't hard to do
nothing to live or die for
and no religion too
Imagine all the people
living life in peace
You may say I'm a dreamer
but I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
and the world will be as one
Thank you
It's my boy! it's our boy, it's our boy
Emmanuel, that's for you!
I don't think I've ever, ever been moved as much as I was by that performance
that was magnificent, your courage, your bravery is unbelievable
Thank you, thank you
Emmanuel, you kind of won us over from the minute you stepped onto this stage
you just had this cheeky grin and this confidence, everything about you...
I just love
-Emmanuel, you're a great singer -Thank you
and I'm not saying that because you've had a hard life, because it's the thing to say,
compared to the other people here, regardless of your story...
you've got a beautiful gift and you moved everyone in this room
Thank you, thank you
Well, first of all I want to commend you on your courage and your bravery
it's really moving and really touching
and above all, you thoroughly entertained everyone
-everybody here was smiling -Thank you guys
and for that I thank you, thank you so much
Thank you
Emmanuel, we have to vote
I would definitely like to see more of you in this competition, it's a YES from me man
It's a YES from me
I can't wait to hear what you're going to sing next, it's a YES from me
Thank you

-Well done everybody -We're done
