  1. If we discover gold in papa bears mansion we must not be tempted due to the laws. Don’t steal gold if you choke on papa bears chicken pot pie. Can you leave the children alone because they are innocent!

  4. My wife passed away from Breast Cancer and I know from experience that it would change you and make you a better person when someone close to you passes away. God Bless.

  5. Your mother is smiling down on you! To be so humble, honest and true to yourself, is very rare. Please don't give up your dream, because your heart is in the right place!!

  6. Used to watch american idol till they brought washed up lionel richie and OMG skank of all time katy perry'miss I sold my soul to the devil for a record deal.Stupid show is as bad as they come now.I liked it in seasons 1 through 3 with simon cowell cuz he made it entertaining.Those 3 just suck as judges.

  7. I lost my mother when i were 18 , then my dad when i were 19 .

  10. I don’t want to cry no more!! He’s life was so sad and when he finally find someone she pass away!! God bless him and I hope he can make a family!!

  11. That young man has lived a thousand lifetimes of pain and still has a smile on his face. What an inspiration to us all.

  12. AI is a talent competition. I'm not a fan of these heartrending narratives. It's supposed to be about his abilities not his tragic back story.

  13. Closed my eyes and thought I was listening to a Jason Isbell Jr. and that's a HUGE compliment !!!!!! Brandon has an amazing voice and song writing !

  14. I was tearing before he even started singing.. but he has such emotion in his voice and it was beautiful! Legit got goose bumps


  16. Your mom is so proud of you! Looking down on you with happiness and so much love. I love you and I don't know you. I'm sorry for the hard times you have been through.

  17. The real pain of losing someone cannot be explained. I lost my mom to cancer and damn his song just made me crryyyyy…

  18. He has such gorgeous eyes. God bless his adoptive Mom. May she rest in eternal peace and joy. She is watching over her son and proud that he is such a talented young man!

  19. Wait hold on. HOLD on.

    You mean to tell me this white male didnt have any privileges in his life and had to struggle most of his life and had to work very hard to get where he is now?!

    Sad story by the way. I admire his dedication and hard work.

  20. My mother gave birth to my older brother when she was 16, and me, at 21. I was born into a four-room tarpaper shack. We moved into a block house my dad built when I was around five-and-a-half, where we spent ten years as a family, until my mother and father divorced. I graduated high school at 6'2 and 145 pounds and playing in a band with my brother which helped me eat. I paid my way through junior college and later, a four-year, state university … paid for by playing a guitar. To quote a boss I later had, "Live ain't easy; but it sure is hard." You keep going. You find Jesus. And sometime it gets even worse. But you keep going. Sure beats living a hard life in this world, and then going to hell without Jesus, in the next …

  21. 5:13 his smile perfect teeth and that song was freaking amazing crying a river over here!!!😭😇🙏💔🎸🎤🎵🎶

  22. I hope he can at least make a single of this song . It would sell . But i think he has more to share . Good luck my friend
