Carlos Guevara seemed to have it all as a kid. He was popular, was on the football team, and was even on student council. But as he hit puberty, he was diagnosed with a developing case of Tourette Syndrome and OCD.
As his condition worsened he eventually had to leave school.
Appropriately, Carlos sang Gravity by John Mayer.
“Gravity is working against me,” has never meant so much.
After receiving a standing ovation, even the judges couldn’t stop smiling and showering him with praise.
“You know what I like about you?” asked Simon. “You’re not a victim. You’ve got this issue, but you haven’t let that stop you doing what you’ve dreamt of doing.”
