                        If you watch this right after watching his original audition, the seismic shift in this man's life is astounding. As a "successful creative" myself who did not have the support of my parents, this touches a deep place in my soul.

                                Dude is the ideal American Idol! I think he's going to grow astronomically as he's sound in his humility. Totally moved by this video!

                                  So sad looks like he doesnt have a family 😞

                                    It’s hard to imagine, how hard it was, for him, to do American Idol, without his family support.

                                    But I’m happy that, he decided to do it anyway. As a result, other people recognized his talent and came together to support him. He earned fans, not only from his home town, but from all over the world. Wish him all the best in his future music career.

                                                  I’ve watched this more than a handful of times it touches my heart and soul. Winning American idol means nothing other than a total and a quick boost in the ranks in music. Sometimes slow and steady wins the race. I would be willing to bet this is the case with Alejandro. I love him so much
