There are many sad, and tragic stories on the X Factor, but this story really tugs on your heart strings. Emmanuel Kelly was brought to an Iraqi orphanage with no hands, and not even a birth certificate when he was still a baby. He and his brother were adopted by a wonderful Australian woman who brought them to Australia and gave them a new life.

Emmanuel may be missing a hand and a birthday, but he was blessed with a strong heart and beautiful voice. He worked up the courage to try for the X Factor, and sang Imagine by John Lennon. The moment he begins to sing, the crowd goes wild.
