Why did I know? Because unlike the celebrity judges, America is smart enough to pick out a true musician, a simple performer in love with what he does. Try as they might, those judges couldn't sway the vote. Not for lack of trying. They "loved" everyone else from week to week, but you could tell Phillip, with his unique style, was an enigma to them. The fact that he won the whole thing while enduring 8 different procedures on his kidneys says a lot about this kid from Georgia. I work through pain everyday, so maybe that's why I felt such a connection to him. When you love what you do, when you want it that much, you will do whatever it takes.
What about you? What's been your struggle and what is your dream. Or is it just the journey?
