We always seem to regret the things we didn’t do, rather than the things we have done.
Daniel Evans is a 38-year-old father of three. He works as a pool cleaner so he can support his family. Unfortunately his wife passed away right after giving birth to their third child.
Evans has always liked singing as a hobby, and he has always been quite good at it. His family and friends always told him he should audition for X-Factor, but he always shrugged it off.
After his wife’s passing, Evans felt like he owed it to her to go audition. Once there the judges asked him why he was auditioning, to which he responded, “life is a little too short, so now I’ve decided this year to just go for it, and at least I can say I tried.”
He told the judges about his wife’s passing and that how he owed it to her to go for it. He sang “Sometimes When We Touch” by Dan Hill, as a dedication to his wife.
One of the judges, Cheryl Cole, couldn’t help but burst into tears. All the judges were amazed by the performance and they all voted “yes”.
After his performance Daniel told viewers, “my wife, I know she was in there with me. I know for a fact and I know she’s proud of me now. I’ve done it for her.”
Watch the tear-jerking performance below.
