  5. I just watched the finale American Idol and I cannot believe that Willie came in second but not to fret about it because look how many came in second place and ended up being famous for their singing and the ones that won American Idol you don’t hear about them so you go Willie you were going to go high places and you may possibly bring a lot of people to the Lord our savior as I am a Christian and I just think your voice is the gift of what God gave you. Keep going forth you are a very blessed young man thank you for your beautiful voice can’t wait to hear more about you and I know we will

  6. I’m 60 and sadly this is only the second time in my life I have felt inspired to let a stranger know how incredible they are. Your voice deeply moves me and you have certainly left your mark on this world. I believe in God but do not attend church. Your heart and soul comes through with every note. I can’t wait to hear more from you. I wish you much greater success and the very best life has to offer. Stay humble.
