A truly heart-warming and inspiring performance on The X Factor (UK)

(CBS News) Do you need a little inspiration at the beginning of the work week? Or possibly some music to help get you going? How about I take care of two birds with one stone (or blog post, as it is) with an amazing recent audition on The X Factor (UK). There is a bit of build-up that you really need to see to get the full effect, but the music kicks in at about 2:50 into the clip.

So does anyone else need a tissue? The truly touching cover of "The Rose" by Bette Midler was done by 34-year-old Christopher Maloney and posted by The X Factor (UK) who write:

When Christopher took to the stage, he was shaking like a leaf and suffering from a serious case of stage-fright. Watch as the shy singer overcomes his nerves to give a show-stopping performance that'll induce more goosebumps than you can shake a stick at.

I mean, seriously, how heart-warming was that performance? And the reaction by Christopher to the audience and judges after it was over - priceless! We here at The Feed would like to give a big triple-rainbow salute to Christopher and wish him all the best in his future endeavors!
