Father Of 5 Mesmerizes With Captivating Performance Of Sam Cooke Classic On American Idol

A 28-year-old and father of five gave a stunning and emotional performance of Sam Cooke’s classic, “Bring It on Home to Me,” during his audition on American Idol.

Most people want to better their situation in life and take steps toward making that vision a reality. They desire a better future for themselves and their children. That’s something all parents want for their children. Anyone who doesn't want to provide or at least try to do so for their kids isn’t much of a parent.

One of those people hoping to change his lot in life and make a better life for his children is Odell Bunton Jr. In a clip posted on YouTube, Odell reveals that he and his wife are the proud parents of five little bundles of joy. To provide for them, he works security during the overnight shift at the Dallas airport.

But Odell and his family live in a hotel, and he wants more. He sees music as a way to do that for him and his family. After his stunning audition on American Idol, Odell may be right!

Moments after singing the first few words of the iconic song, it’s clear that Odell has a ton of musical, God-given talent. Given the expressions from Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan during his audition, they also agree.

All the judges gave the father of five plenty of comments and compliments on his audition. However, Katy gave him the highest, kindest compliment.

“I would say that you’re the best soul singer we have this season,” Katy said. 

Lionel and Luke agree with Katy’s assessment. Luke said that he even got chills while listening to Odell.

Odell is on his way to Hollywood and is one big step closer to giving his family the better life he desires for them.

Psalm 95:1 “O come, let us make songs to the Lord; sending up glad voices to the Rock of our salvation.”
