Mark Ondracek Jr. Dude where can I get the full version of the song??? I will pay for this loved it. Keep up the good work.
Kevin Johnson I disagree 100% with Lionel and Katy. His voice was incredible and his song writing skills matched it. Like Lionel said, when you hear a song one time and can completely understand the story and even relate you accomplished what many professionals dream of doing.
Shannon Leigh Turney I’ve known Brandon since he was in the 9th grade. I’ve had him in class and he graduated and played ball with my oldest son. I can tell you this young man is polite and so humble, genuine and great all the way around!! We love you Brandon and so hope all of your dreams come true!
Jaron N Heather Reed He does an amazing job singing in our small town and we're all proud of how far you've come. All the way
Jimmy Moriarty His voice reminds me a lot of Matchbox Twenty, absolutely pure, yet he has that raspiness touch to it that gives it that uniqueness. If they teach him to be able to sing as loud as like a Chris Daughtry, this guy will be the real deal. Great voice
Rachell Bramlett For the record, Brandon’s story is legit. He went to school with my kids. It goes to show, you never know what someone is going thru. Be a little kinder in a cruel world.
Brandon Elder. My sister is friends with your sister Robin, all she has talked about is you being on AI, i couldnt wait to see you, and then we had tornado warnings tonight in Arab of all places so watched you on the internet!!! OMG! Sweetie, Ive never liked AI, but God is good and guess Ill be watching it this time around…..cuz you will be the 2018 winner. Bless you and sing your heart out.
William Broadway This is my family. I called Brandon Elder's cell phone when this aired. He was in a tornado shelter in Alabama at the time. He still answered my call. He is an awesome person and deserves whatever good this brings.
Lio Herno 4 episodes so far, yet I already heard a lot of new original songs. And all of those songs should be on iTunes by now. This one just moved me.
Julia A Cole I thought i ws going to leave my boys in 2008…from the same disease…I often wonder if my sons would have had the same resilience as this young man,had i not survived.
My answer is …yes….
Love this young man's special gift,
And will be watching for him.
As we all should!
Susan Unterseh One look into his eyes tells the whole story, and his story moved my eyes to tears. He isn't the strongest male singer in the competition, but his outward strength comes from within his beautiful heart and soul. Love this guy!
Samantha Kappell Are you kidding me?! His voice doesn't need work. He's as real as they come and I don't know about anybody else but I love to listen to real. Half the people this year arnt even that great and this guy can write, sing and he's cute!! I could listen to him for days
Feliana Marie Landeros I have never heard such a pure honest voice- your song was incredible. My mom passed when I was 14 I was also adopted by an incredible woman. Your song hit so close to home. You have my forever vote!!!! Don’t change and stay humble
Jamie Cherry I can’t believe they commented on his voice, he’s so much better than several of the people that went through so far. sorry for your loss, you have an amazing voice.
