As someone from Stockton, who’s going to delta next year, and who loves poetry with that same love he has, I think this gives me a bit more hope. His writing his voice his everything really, truly moved me in ways people rarely do. I aspire to have the same way with words that he does

The lack of audience made this poem better also writing is a talent he deserved this golden buzzer it wasn’t a singer for once. The only singer I truly believe deserved the golden buzzer in this season is Cristina I loved her

Such a talented young man- brave and strong to get up and perform with so much emotion that you can feel. It was to say the least very intense...keep on keeping on! You can do this Brandon, I'm sure all Stocktonians are cheering for you! Your mother seems like she was an amazing woman and raised some amazing loving children!

I loved it, just amazing. I tried to translate it in french, so if there is french people who can tell me what they thought about it (i am french, i am just not sure). « J’ai 2 faits pour vous : Premièrement je mesure 1 mètre 8, Deuxièmement, l’amour est la chose la plus vulnérable que quelqu’un aura jamais, Et vous/tu dois apprendre à la garder librement/sans serrer, Pour que le départ sois moins douloureux. Le 14 juillet 1996 un ange est descendu sur terre, Son nom, Danielle Marie Gibson mais je la connais seulement comme Puff. Son sourire est aussi vaste que l’univers, Ses yeux étincelle comme les étoiles, Elle est mon monde et ma sœur. A 4 ans, j’ai appris à aimé sans compter/avec dévouement par jour, Et j’ai vue ma force s’élever jusqu’à mes genoux, Son visage souriant faisant voler mon âme. Mais, le 23 Mars 1997, j’ai été ramené à la réalité, Car elle a quitté la terre pour retourner à la maison Parmis les étoiles juste à côté de Dieux, Mais, j’ai été laissé ici/je suis resté ici, pour fabriquer des ailes à partir de larmes et de rêve, Pourtant je suis encore hanté par ses cauchemars, Car j’ai un esprit très créatif qui conçoit parfois ces réalités alternatives, Où elle est encore présente, en vie et tout ce que j’aurais voulu faire avec elle, Je les joues encore et encore et encore. Mais je suis fatigué de joué Dieux car je dois accepter le fait que ma sœur ne reviendra jamais. Et c’est le coût de l’amour, aimer au point, Ou l’on ne peut s’imaginer vivre sans eux. Fixer une tombe voulant échanger mon 1 mètre 8 pour le tiens mais ce n’est pas possible. Je sais, j’ai dit plus tôt de garder/tenir l’amour librement/sans serrer, pour que le départ sois moins douloureux, Mais si cette douleur et ces souvenirs sont les seules choses qui me reste de toi, Je ne regretterai jamais ces cicatrices pour avoir avoir essayer de te retenir. »

Usually I never comment on youtube, but this is something special. Wooow, you can feel that every single word is filled with emotions. This just shows that talent isn't just about the voice, the moves or the tricks. Talent is also about the ability to express that raw feeling straight from the heart and touch other souls.

I lost my baby sister in 2018 to Influenza type B, she was only 6 years old. I'm still having a hard time to recover, everytime I watch this video, I cry, I cry till no more tears come out. I've been struggling with grief and aim towards alcohol to smooth my pain. It's hard to lose a sibling because you wont ever see them again...... I miss her everyday and I dont wanna feel like this. This poem explains every part of me. I try, i try.....

This is the worst act. Hey guys, it’s me, Cody Leeeee. I won AGT last year. The only reason I won is because I’m a stupid cripple. Lol. I know I’m stupid. I can’t even talk. Lol. Anyway, this act sucked because turns out, he never had a sister. Lol!

You just dont get the act because you've never went through a struggle like he did. Secondly, how disgusting of you to make fun of a "crippled" like honestly are you right in the head? Lastly, he does have a sister thats why there were pictures of her, and even if he didn't his poem was phenomenal. So gtfo with your negative energy and work on yourself honey cause aint nobody got to have that much hate Xoxoxo

My son Sam has been dead for 17yrs. Sam was 13yrs old in 2003. He was getting our mail and an out of control car going 70mph hit him. The car hit him as if it was a bomb. My only child, my only son was lying there. He was on the street, his head smashed 4inches into the ground. Time went into slow-motion.... You know? I dug Sam's head fom the earth. The bloody, mangled head of my boy, laying in my arms, dead. I held him like a baby as I tried to hold his right cheek against his face. This image still haunts me in my dreams, and days. I walk up to his open casket. There he was. He was clean, freshly washed hair, and his face was just fine. I ran 2 blocks away until 2 of my brother in laws caught me. " Sam's fine" was last week real? The mortician worked on Sam for over 24hrs. If I were in front of y'all and just told you my story face to face , much less put it into words for strangers, without losing it? I can't wrap my head around it after 17yrs, how should I expect you to feel? I have 7sisters&1brother and one of us is sick. She has cancer. She's fighting! This is the first sibling that could possibly leave us. I lost my child, yes, but from Brandons poem, losing my siblings( especially because I'm the youngest) I watched my dad lose his 6sisters&5 brothers because he was the youngest also.. I'm terrified at the thought of another tragedy. Thank you for being strong Brandon. I can't believe he got through that without crying. Wow❤💋 Beautiful Strong REAL. Bless you sweetheart 💋

That was gorgeous, but WHY aren't they wearing masks when they're near each other? And WHY aren't they social distancing?? This is irresponsible for a show with such a large following. I'm really shocked.
