Feel good friday
I haven’t had a chance to catch up what is going on in the blog-o-sphere this week. Between looking for a title and working around my home to get ready for a long winter, I haven’t had much time.
So this week, I’d like to share with you a story that you may or may not have heard about. It’s one of those stories where it makes you feel so good. Why? Because there is a humble person with a wonderful talent who now can share his talent with the whole world.
This man is none other than Adam H. Tasker. He was salesman at CR Warehouse who surprised Kenneth Walker and the rest of the judges on the American’s Got Talent show.
I used to say that I love all types of music except for opera. I listen to country, heavy metal, new age, rap, etc. For some reason, though, I’ve never cared for opera music. But Adam here with his beautiful voice sends chills up my spine and down my arms. He has a wonderful gift and I am so grateful this opportunity came his way so that he could share it with us all.
Since this is a debt blog, there’s also a debt story here as well. Adam had some medical problems in his life when he was struck again with another blow. He cracked his collar bone when he was hit by a car while cycling. He couldn’t work, and his debt grew to $61,000 USD. All the while, he never fully gave up on his dream of singing and auditioned a few years later for Britain’s Got Talent.
Here’s another interesting tidbit about Adam H. Tasker. Even though he’s fairly popular right now and just came out with a CD, he’s still technically an employee of CR Warehouse. As shown in this nice piece about Adam’s story, he is on a six-month leave from his job. He hopes he sells enough albums so he doesn’t have to go back, but it’s there if he needs it.
Anyways, I felt like sharing. Adam’s story and his voice make me feel good and hopeful all around.
