When I saw Jonathan with his Jimi Hendricks T shirt hiding behind his hair the way Janis Joplin would I had not idea I would hear what I can only describe as a voice one can only Thank G-d for --- a voice touched by divinity -- angels....
Jonathan was bullied and in such a depression most of his life because of his body size he dropped out of high school.
Before he did his music teacher hooked him up with Charlotte who is a year YOUNGER age 16, yes he is 17 years old.
This is an amazing story. I love Jonathan and you can see when he is first complimented he can't even smile -- his attempts at smiles are so alien -- he is so overcome his smiles are almost a grimace....
Charlotte is so positive, so upbeat --- she is the reason Jonathan was entered in this competition. She is very smart because without him she would not be a sensation but without Charlotte he would not be a sensation. I love them both and I bought two songs from their album Prayer and Caruso which I have listened to over and over like a broken record -- hey we don't have the option of broken records anymore but his voice a miracle any era.
He has never been to an Opera. I remember my first opera NYC Pavarotti what a thrill although when I saw him by Central park with lots of scarfs around his neck I wasn't wowed but he seemed very nice.
Watch the doc -- he gets to visit Italy and Pavarotti in spirt.... Jonathan is in shock right now and he may not go the route he really should beginning a rigorous opera training but now he loves life and People great him and cheer him bully free.
I would want both of them for my friends -- this is a great story of hope, love and friendship and yes Miracles do happen.....Simon Cowell is really winning in this. I have come to really like Simon.
Documentary: Watch Jonathan change transformed in to a happy person that beams.
He comes out from behind his hair and the transformation is so moving!!!!!!
Special note to Charlotte you are so beautiful and such sunshine do not change and do anything to alter your beautiful self. You are so beautiful as you are.
