The talent shows like “America’s Got Talent,” “American Idol,” and “The Voice” often serve as platforms for individuals to ascend to stardom or to win prize money. However, for Diaz, the motivation was entirely different and deeply personal.

During his conversation with judge Sofia Vergara, Diaz explained his purpose behind participating in the reality TV show. “I’m very close [with my family],” he said. “They’re actually the main reason I’m here today. My mom, she’s actually battling breast cancer. It’s OK. She’s had it since I was two years old, and I’m here because I want her to be like, ‘That’s my son, he’s doing something great.’ I want her to see me and say, ‘I raised a star.’”

Diaz’s emotionally-charged dance was not just a performance but a heartfelt message. It not only exhibited his remarkable talent but also his profound love for his ailing mother. The audience was visibly moved, and many were brought to tears.

At the voting stage, all the judges rewarded Diaz four ‘yes’ for his captivating performance, sending him to the next round of the show.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” – 1 Corinthians 13:7

  1. This young man is so talented, and I look for him to go far in show business, or gymnastics. I think there would be several that would support him. He not only shows talent in dance, and gymnastics, but a lot of love for his mother, and sister.
