Singer kicked out for being gay wows America’s Got Talent

This brought tears to our eyes. Check out 20 year old Jonathan Allen who performed on America’s Got Talent last night.

Jonathan was kicked out on his 18th birthday for being gay.

‘My parents, they didn’t really support my lifestyle,’ Allen said.

‘I haven’t seen my parents in about two and a half years. I love them with all my heart. I don’t know if they still love me. It’s been difficult and music is what makes me feel like I belong.’

He added: ‘In my darkest moments I can escape through music. I want them to see what I’ve done with my life, and I’m not a bad person for being who I am.

‘I want them to see that. I just hope I can make them proud.’

Judge Howie Mandel said: ‘Your own family disowned you, but with your talent, this show has become your family, and we’d like to say “welcome home”.

‘We love you. We accept you. And we’re so proud that you came here.’
