Are you crying?



Great performances and great drama move me to tear up. It's true. The scene in Jerry McGuire when he says, "you complete me", and she says, "You had me at Hello"....down roll the tears.

Last night it happened when Micheal Grimm, the crooner from Waveland MS won America's Got Talent. Those sad world battered eyes, great soul voice, and story of loss all got to me and I was so happy to see him win. Believe me Waveland MS was pretty much wiped off the map five years ago.

I also tear up when I heard the angelic voice of Jackie Evanko singing some of the great memorable pieces of operatic music with a brilliance and passion far beyond her years. I was afraid our love for child prodigies would give her a win. At ten she does not need a Vegas Show, she needs to grow up in family and continue to develop her craft and be the next Charlotte Church.

You and I are on the same page Don. I watched and had pretty much those exact thoughts.. even mentioned Charlotte Church to my wife.
