In our books, the unpretentious, unassuming laid back chicken catcher Kevin Skinner from Kentucky wins America’s Got Talent auditions. They should end the search right now. America has found its talent! Much as we dislike singers auditioning in America’s Got Talent because we think it should be in a different avenue or category and not to be put on the same basket as an Illusionist, magician or juggler- 35 year old, unemployed farmer Kevin Skinner blew us away. Our jaws dropped and almost fell on our seats hearing him sing Garth Brooks.
He is the real deal. The phrasing was perfect. Emotions flowing. We have never seen an honest performance in a long time. It is a rare gift not even seen in huge names in the music industry. Dare we say his audition cover of “If Tomorrow Never Comes” was better than that of Garth Brooks himself?! Enough said. Watch the audition and yes, it’s all right to get chills and be misty-eyed.
