True artists have their own method of dealing with suffering, which often results in their expressing that suffering artistically via music. And this is exactly what Tyler Allen, who hails from Alabama, conveyed in his American Idol audition that stunned everyone away.
Tyler Allen is a 24-year-old driver for a delivery service who lives in Mobile, Alabama. Recently, he suffered a terrible loss when an 18-wheeler truck tragedy claimed the lives of both his sister and his nephew Noah.
And despite the fact that Tyler has been the steady support that the rest of the family has been counting on, he still had his fair share of suffering to endure.
He wanted to be able to dedicate a song to his nephew, who had just recently begun walking and talking before being struck by the 18-wheeler vehicle, so he tried out for American Idol. This was the song that he would sing to him while he rocked him to sleep.
Can you even begin to fathom the amount of anguish and, at the same time, the amount of bravery that Tyler went through in order to perform “I believe in you and me” by Whitney Houston?
“I have faith in us, and I have faith that our love will last forever. From what I can tell, you will continue to be the one for me. I believe in us and I believe in our love.”
The judges of the audition complimented him, which led to his participation in the American Idol audition.
However, Tyler’s most important goal is to assist his family in making progress.
