    Talent is talent at the end of the day. You get these shows like American Idol and the X Factor who try and manufacture it, but that man has it and i'm sure he'll be a big success.

    I was going to say the same thing. Has anyone REALLY checked out this guy and his background? Then is this going to be another " American Idol" type situation where everyone else will start looking for the next " Hidden Diamond in the Rough" homeless person and gets killed in the process? I know there's a story behind every homeless person BUT there's sometimes a reason they want to be homeless. I've dealt with these type people for over 36 years they can be very, very dangerous. Each one is NOT a diamond in the rough. Feel good story? For now maybe. We've got more important issues to deal with I'm afraid than just one homeless person getting a job.

    mctennis.....stop boring us with facts.

    But, your "American Idol" idea sounds great. I think this would make a fine new TV show. We'll call in "homeless people" (which are actually ***gasp*** professional actors.....which are usually homeless people anyway, to that is sticking pretty close to reality) with amazing hidden talents and they can vie for the opportunity to do something for Donald Trump....or maybe they will vie for a spot in the next big movie. We'll work that part out later.

    Any idea what we should call the new show?

    I got teary eyed when he started talking about his mom and by seeing how emotional he got.

    Its nice to see something like that.

    Hopefully he'll have enough money to buy braces.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this guy goes back on the news, that he went back to his old habits. I hope not.
