Marcio Donaldson American Idol Audition “Jealous”

Marcio Donaldson American Idol Audition

Marcio Donaldson‘s American Idol audition was a real tear-jerker!

The 28-year-old singer brought along his six-month-old son Rashad, who he adopted when he was just a week old after his sister was deemed unable to care for him.

Marcio opened up about his family’s troubled past, including his sister’s drug addiction, and explained how he wants to give Rashad a better life.

He auditioned with “Jealous” by Labrinth and teared up as he sang the song to the little boy.

Marcio Donaldson sings a twist on "Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin for his Hollywood Week Solo Performance on American Idol 2018.

Damn straight to my heart, bless this young man give him all the courage, stamina and love and lots of luck for him and that beautiful child, need more tissues . What a touching story and an inspiring man! I know it may seem like times can be hard and it gets tough especially after the life that you have lived, the things you have been through and pain you had to endure .. let alone having to take custody & responsibility for your nephew and step up to plate and be that father that he needs completely unplanned. However, God has bigger plans for you. That pain has made you stronger & guided you to where you are now, and you are blessed!

Gods hands are on you, and you are covered in his holy blood. To have such a strong, loving, beautiful big heart after the life that you had is an inspiration to us all. I have no doubts in my mind that this American Idol journey will take you very far & you very well could be a finalist!

Have faith in God, keep that beautiful heart of yours, keep that ambition and drive, take care of your son, and sing your heart out & God will place you in a position to where you don’t have to stress and worry anymore about how to take care of your baby. You have broken the cycle, and you have my vote! My prayers are with you & your family. Thank you for being a real man, stepping up to the plate and taking that baby in. You are a testimony to millions of people.

Love Marcio Donaldson American Idol Audition, Am I the only one who thinks that American idol is going back to what it was meant to be. The last few years before Randy left and the others it seemed to derail. So far everyone I have heard deserves to be on the show not only for talent but for some of the back story's of there lifw

Gwyn Shields Johnston All I can say is this kid can come out Compton and survive all he has, and step up and be a real man a father to this child, and still be as humble and raw emotion as he is. He can survive the music industry.. his genre, may not be what some are stereotyping it to be. I can't wait to see. I think Lionel Richie or even Simon will sign him.

Glenda Davies I heard American idol was not going to show some of the redicoulous acts they had in the past, which I thought was hurtful at times. I was left not knowing if they were kidding or mentally challenged in some way. Kudos to the new American idol I may actually start watching, love Team Marcio Donaldson Shirt
