Tell me what you’re thinking um, well, I think he’s the best male singer we’ve seen so far and I think he’s top ten so She doesn’t do that like that that much my biological mom had me at a very young age She was 15 or 16 when she had me I guess she just felt like she wouldn’t be able to give me the life that somebody else could so she Supposedly traded me for a car to some family in Birmingham That Person wasn’t capable of taking care of a baby. So a short time later I was adopted Patricia elder raised me no father in the house most of the time she worked two jobs Just to make sure that I could play those sports and do all those extra things that everybody else was doing My mom was first diagnosed with breast cancer When I was 14 She was cancer-free for two or three years and then the cancer came back It got to the point where there was nothing they could do anymore It was tough tough for me it was tough for my whole family and that’s really when I turned to music mom Got me my first guitar that Christmas it was this cheap guitar and I started playing and I was really terrible at it. I Started singing a lot in front of her she liked it. So I just kept singing My mom’s battle with cancer ended and she passed away in April of 2016 Without her there’s no telling where I’d be right now. You know, she provided me with a stable home And worked very hard to get me where I’m at today Man I Don’t know if I’ve ever heard a story like that. So me either I Guess it makes you a lot stronger in life, huh? Yeah. Yeah stronger I guess Humble blessed to be here. So well, no matter what happens here today man Congrats on being here.

Take care, man Hey, so tell us about yourself I am David Francisco 25 years old. I moved to Nashville to do music in 2016 and then I actually got hit by a car And paralyzed from the waist down. Oh Just three weeks after I moved to Nashville a distracted driver ran a red light and t-boned me on my bicycle I don’t remember anything except for waking up in the hospital and Asking why aren’t my legs on the bed? And I looked down and sure enough. There’s my legs on the bed, but I can’t feel them When they told me that I was paralyzed from the waist down I thought everything’s over music’s over relationships are over I cried every single day for months And then I’m in bed one night and I see my foot move just a little Within the next two three months I had a lot of improvement and that continued for until today really I don’t take anything for granted While I was recovering I got a letter from a friend when I heard about what happened to David I was devastated and I wrote him Hopefully encouraging him to not give up at all We ended up reconnecting through the accident I was amazed by how she didn’t seem to be fazed by the fact that I was in a wheelchair He is the most joyous the most energetic The bright light of the room life is so much fun with him And I cry but I also laughs I think we’re super blessed I’m so happy to stand by his side being on American Idol is huge because this is the next step trying to reincorporate myself into real life and Then maybe I could send a support myself with music This lovely lady is my fiancee Yeah Graduations honored to be here.

About the author


  1. I came here to look for the next Clapton, Jimmy Paige,Jimi Hendrix, or Stevie Ray Vaughn but it turns out no one has talent anymore!

  2. ….I've watched various "Voice" type shows from around the world and these judges seem to be the most sharp, and most "into it", as well as eminently qualified, of all that I have seen……I guess it's fitting that they should be on the show that started it all……

  3. People saying "if you dont have sad history you cant win"

  4. Lol sometimes I just wonder how those people who disliked this video manage to be among the naturally selected ??

  5. I love how it's ok for women (Katy Perry) to sexually harass and be inappropriate towards men but if this was one of the male judges slobbering all over a female contestant it would be drama. Double standards are a %@#$% joke. How was that ok?

  6. Half or these were decent. Not amazing by far. The judges were much more generous than they used to be

  7. I love the girlfriend in the second audition asserting her dominance towards Katy without saying anything xD. The body language and acts are sooo obvious. Great audition(s) tho

  8. @9:40 dude starts to lie and had to get cut off before he put his foot in his mouth

    "My dad immigrated here when he was THREE years old…. to escape…"

    What the fuck was he escaping at 3?

  9. you know people backstory that make their personality.sad backstory make you personality tough up.while happy backstory make it harder to face future reality

  10. the first one had a great voice and a even greater heart …the rest were just average bums with a sad story…

  11. It was worth it just to hear the pony tailed guy and he PLAYS n sings ! Not that I didn’t like the others!

  12. I’d love to audition and when they ask me what’s my story, I say…I don’t have one. And see the reactions

  13. I’m auditioning for my dads brothers friends son that got stung by a wasp 8 years ago. It was really hard for me to know that happened.

  14. American Idol just change your name to: Americans w sad stories who also happen to sing. Can't even watch this shit anymore wtf

  15. “Errr I’m John and last year I was stabbed and got ran over by a truck right after finding out my mom had died while resuscitating my dog which was run over by the same truck. And the truck was driven by my Dad who actually ran away with another guy the second I was born. Now give me that ticket to Hollywood.”

    Can the producers reveal their stories AFTER they’ve won the important rounds or something?

  16. all these performance were awesome, i really love the original song the guy wrote for his mother, it brought me to tears, honestly it touch me in a way because i lost my mother too at the age of 3. and the guy who performed last, he was an inspiration not only to the judges but to someone like me who was injured in 2014. If he can over come his pain and still play maybe i shouldn't give up either. Thank you to whoever posted this video.

  17. 0:38 no please don't do that, the one thing you don't do to a person with down's syndrome is talk to him like he's a kid, well unless he's is actually a kid

  18. So this fiance of this guy who got paralyzed from the waist down… you know that I had to end it with my fiance because I was that last thing that was important in her life. I am glad that it exists though.

  19. Thank you God am blessed to be alive. Music really connect human beings with the feelings last guy who got hits by car got me cried people are truly amazing may jesus restored his life

  20. The thing is,I don't know if I should like or dislike,because I hate the fact that they're "using" their sad and/or personal stories as a tool,but on the other hand all of them were literally amazing singers!
