Johnny Manuel had a record label sign him when he was 14 years old and once toured with NSYNC, but then suddenly lost his music career. “As a kid I thought that I was going to take off and see the stars and obviously it didn’t happen that way,” he responded when asked what happened by judge Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent.
But if his audition is anything to go by, he’s back on track to realizing his dreams. As soon as he finishes his powerful rendition of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing’, audience and judges jump to their feet clapping. He absolutely nails it. Watch for yourself in the video below.
