Jealous that you’re happy without me
X-Factor Contestant brings judges to tears
This clip from X-Factor had me in complete tears this morning as I listen to the lyrics “Jealous that you’re happy without me”. I feel 100% that it was because we celebrated the life of my Aunt a week ago today as she joined who was one of my best friends in this life, my Grandpa Bill. I know that when somebody leaves this life, they are in a far better place than this world. In a sense I too am jealous that they are in such a beautiful and perfect place now. I want YOU to team up with me in this moment that we have here on Earth to bring as much love, happiness, and joy to every person that touches our lives.
You all know by now that my passion in this life is being a Father, a mentor to others, and music. Music has a beautiful way of bringing out the emotions in others that might be otherwise kept inside. The kid in this video is Josh, age 21 who dedicated this song to his friend that passed away in 2013. He shares prior to the audio, “The lyrics kind of say I’m jealous that you’re happy without me,” Daniel explained. “And I kind of see it in the sense that I’m jealous that he’s now happy in heaven, that he’s moved on to a better place and that I can’t still be with him.”
During this heart-wrenching performance both Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini were brought to tears. You’ll see at the end a very emotional scene behind the scenes of the actual performance. This has to be one of the most captivating moments I have been in as well during a performance.
