    Hello LPSGers -

    In a completely non-penis related matter, I hope you will all take the time to have a listen and a watch.
    I happened to catch on Inside Edition tonight a piece about a 13 year old British kid called Andrew Johnston who appeared on the UK version of American Idol. He sang a piece of classical music (which I enjoy) and it was the most remarkable and extraordinary thing I have ever heard in my life. The report said that on utube - movies, tv shows, celebrities his performance has received over 2million hits. I hope you check it out and wish this kid well.
    This kid who was bullied and given a rough time at school beacause of his love of music ans singing has a truly GOD given talent that the world will be able to hear.
    I am one of the most cynical, world weary people you may ever know and listening to this kid sing brought chills to my spine and tears to my eyes for the beauty of it. I hope to be able to see this kid perform live at some point.
    I am sorry I don't have the link. But I hope you are able to track it down and hear this kid sing. Cheers. - Chris

    I saw the clip too, on Inside Edition. The kid certainly can sing. Like cajun boy 8x6, I'd pay to see this kid sing in concert. His voice was pure and a true joy to hear.
