This has to be one of the most emotional performances ever heard at song contests cause there was literally no one who did not shed a tear watching it. Vernon Barnard appeared on the Voice South Africa and put a whole new meaning to a phrase “Blind Audition”. The audience was shocked with his amazing voice, but it was actually the story behind the ‘Story of My Life’ song that left them completely speechless.
Vernon was born with glaucoma, and he could see reasonably well until he lost his sight and underwent 16 surgeries before the age of 5. The judges were just impressed with his amazing talent and his heartwarming rendition of One Direction’s song made one of them burst into tears. Check out the video and don’t forget to share!
