20 year old Jonathan Allen from Lawrenceburg Tennessee made quite an impression on viewers and judges on last night’s America’s Got Talent.
Allen, in a behind the scenes interview, told the story of how his family disowned him at age 18 when he came out as gay. While he said he still loves his parents very much he also has not seen them in more than two years.
After performing Andrea Bocelli’s “Time to Say Goodbye,” Allen received a standing ovation from the audience and all four judges. Judge Howie Mandel told the young singer “With your talent, the show has become your family, and we’d like to say, welcome home. We love you, and we accept you.”
