American Idol auditions

No t.v. program has EVER made me cry the way I just did now, watching 64-yo Sherman audition! That was just so special.

Sherman's wife of 20 years was diagnosed with cancer not long ago. As part of keeping her spirits high, he came up with a plan to get himself on American Idol and she helped and supported him. She passed away 2 days before the LA auditions. He got on, explained his story, sang his song just for her. I was crying so hard at the lyrics but can't remember them now! I think it might have been You Belong to Me, but not sure. It was so touching.

Bravo Sherman!!!!! (((((Sherman)))))
