Like too many children in the world, Paul Thomas Mitchell grew up with parents who were hurting too much themselves to give him the love, care, and attention he deserved. 

But after years of alcohol abuse, his father finally woke up and sobered up, and is now the dad Paul always dreamed up. 

To show his dad how much he means to him, Paul wrote his own song My Life, and performed it with a strong John Mayer bravado on stage of America’s Got Talent

By the end of his performance, nearly the entire auditorium was misty-eyed, including even host Nick Cannon

      I hope your dreams come alive,
      and you never let them crush,
      I hope you live life too slow,
      ‘cuz it’s too fast to rush,
      and when you live and you learn,
      I hope you never learn enough,
      The sky is not the limit,
      So act like you are flying.

      ‘Cuz people will always tell you,
      About that other side,
      How the grass is always greener,
      and the sun, it always shines,
      and People will always tell you,
      How to live your life,
      You know what I say to that?
      This is my life.

      ‘Cuz people will always tell you,
      About that other side,
      How the grass is always greener,
      and the sun, it always shines,
      and People will always tell you,
      How to live your life,
      You know what I say to that?
      This is my life.
      This is my…
      This is my… life.
