Who can forget ex America’s Got Talent contestant Tyler Butler- Figueroa. The young violinist’s cover of Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Stronger’ earned him Simon Cowell’s coveted Golden Buzzer and a world-wide following.
The young boy from North Carolina, Tyler was bullied by classmates after being diagnosed with leukemia aged just four and a half. Today he is warming hearts again with a passionate violin cover of ‘Amazing Grace.’ The hymn was originally written by John Newton as a thank you to the Lord for giving him a second chance at life.
John was a sailor and used to use bad language while working, but when he found himself caught in the middle of a terrible storm, he cried out to God to save him and his ship. God saved him and John started his life as a Christian and dedicated himself to God. The touching words of ‘Amazing Grace’ reflects exactly the transformation done by God in his life.
Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T’was blind but now I see
13 year old, Tyler is using his talents to glorify the Lord and it’s such a blessing to see this young boy serve the Lord with all his heart, mind and strength.
