Fifteen-year-old Tristan McIntosh got an amazing surprise at the end of her Idol audition, and it wasn’t a golden ticket – though she did get that too!
McIntosh’s introduction revolved greatly around the absence of her mother, Amy McIntosh, who is serving our country overseas as an army major in the Middle East. Though the 15-year-old was disappointed her mother couldn’t be at auditions to support her, she knew she was there in spirit.
The 15-year-old truly blew the judges away with her talent and established herself as a real contender in this competition.
After the contestant finished her audition, judge Harry Connick Jr. announced that he had something he had to read, which ended up being a letter from McIntosh’s mother offering her love and support. I was trying hard to hold back tears.
But just moments later, Tristan’s hero mother emerges from the back of the audition room! She had been there the whole time! At that point, I was DONE. The tears were coming down and there was no way I could hold them back.
Please SHARE to commend this heroic mother for being there for her talented daughter.
