Previously Homeless Man Walks On Stage. When He Starts Singing This Classic, You’ll Think It’s Joe Cocker
In the ocean of young singers with smooth voices who audition for America’s Got Talent, Herbie Russ stood out like a sore thumb.
After turning his life around from years of fighting addiction and living out of his car, he got clean and at the age of 54 took a shot at stardom. Being a talented saxophone player with raw and raspy voice, he chose a perfect song for the Judge Cut and the only remark Simon had is that he sounded EXACTLY like Joe Cocker. That’s not a bad thing in my book.
Here’s the most soulful audition of AGT you’ll ever hear.
