That big speaker behind this America’s Got Talent contestant is not just for show, she needs it so she can feel the beat and the tempo of her song. You see, Mandy Harvey lost her hearing when she was 18, but those 18 years were enough for her to fall in love with music. Not only did hearing loss not discourage her to pursue her dream of becoming a singer, she was brave enough to apply for her biggest gig yet, playing in front of the judges and millions of viewers all over the world. How much did they like [More]
People who are more knowledgeable about horse training than me agree that this is a brilliant example what connection between a horse and its handler should be. I’m not an expert, but  I couldn’t stop watching this video nevertheless. This gorgeous mare is Esmeralda and I can only imagine how much time it took to make her feel comfortable and calm with these huge tarps closing on her. She has so much trust in her trainer that she even let them cover her completely if he’s there with her. Graceful, trustful and oh so beautiful. goviralhasPoppedUp = false; // create [More]
Having a family member with special needs doesn’t only mean learning disabilities, sometimes even everyday things come as a challenge. Fortunately, there are still kind people left in the world who make it all look easy – people like this barber. One of his customers, a sixteen year old boy with autism was having a particularly bad day and ran out of his barbershop mid-haircut. They found him in his safe space in the back of the family minivan and what the barber did next made me wish there are more people like him in the world. goviralhasPoppedUp = false; [More]
You know you’ve reached some next level magic when you don’t even need to distract your audience. I mean come on, there is no way this is humanly possible, right? It’s so simple, 4 coins, 4 cards and a rose. The first part of his act is awesome, I don’t know how he does it but I’ve seen other magicians do a similar illusion. However it’s the second part that got me staring at the screen with my mouth half open. It happens right in front of your eyes but you still have no idea how he’s doing it. goviralhasPoppedUp [More]
Josiah Siska is one of millions of kids who were trying out for the American Idol. He may have been one of a million, but when he started performing it was clear he was one IN a million. Oh my goodness, his voice is so deep and soothing I wanna wrap myself in it next to a camp fire on a warm summer night. A big Johnny Cash fan couldn’t have picked a better song for his audition and his delivery was flawless. I just wish the judges hadn’t started goofing around. But honestly I don’t think Josiah needs them, [More]
I’ve heard this song millions of times and with every following cover of it I seem to be more and more in love with it. The fact that it’s Jon Bon Jovi singing this isn’t helping me fall out of love. Holy smokes this guy can sing. You don’t need to know who Bon Jovi are or even like their own music to appreciate what they did to Leonard Cohen’s immortal classic “Hallelujah”. Every time I play this it gives me goosebumps and I played it hundreds of times. It’s such an incredible performance you know you’ll play it for [More]
Four years ago a pregnant Sudanese woman and her children found refuge in the United States. Her husband and the children’s father was stuck in a refugee camp back in Africa with no way of joining them. In four years the woman found inseparable friends who helped her get accustomed to the new country, helped her deliver her baby and led the campaign for bringing her husband over. Now, after all this time it was time for her story to have a happy ending. They could all barely contain their excitement as the plane landed and it was tears all [More]
This is the attitude that makes an athlete great. Just imagine the psychology behind this situation. In a race that’s decided by split seconds you take a fall in the last lap. Now your opponent’s are well ahead of you, you lost your rhythm and you lost your confidence… what do you do? Give up? Finish the race last with no pressure? Or try to do something Heather Dorniden did… I’ve never seen anything like this and I’m pretty sure we won’t see it happen again for a while. Such strength, both physical and mental… goviralhasPoppedUp = false; // create [More]
It’s always important to show gratitude for our troops fighting oversees, and no one know better how much sacrifice it takes than this little second grader. Imogen Nowak was chosen to give a speech at a School Assembly and tell how important it is to send candy to our soldiers because her daddy was deployed in Qatar and apparently “They don’t have candies over there”. Little did she know that the candies she sent to her dad didn’t have to travel too far this time because he was much closer than she thought. Look who sneaks up behind her. goviralhasPoppedUp [More]
This is how I imagine superstars are born. Alex Guthrie is an Atlanta musician who sets up his little stage every day and plays his guitar hoping to be discovered. Today was his lucky day. Unknown to him, AmFam and one special guest decided to give him a little career boost. Yes, Guthrie always dreamt of having his music heard by millions and after this video was uploaded, that dream came true. For him it started like an ordinary gig in front of a small crowd but when Jennifer Hudson showed up it all changed. goviralhasPoppedUp = false; // create [More]
