His 2 Dads Adopted Him And 14 Years Later He Sings This Powerful Message To His Mom.
It’s easy to assume that every contestant competing on TV's talent shows are looking to become rich and famous. The dream for many is that a powerful music executive will see the performance and turn the individual into the next Lady Gaga or Justin Timberlake.
Not everyone wants to just win. Some people have the need to prove to themselves their worth or maybe have someone special in their lives watching them. Campbell Walker Fields may only be 14 years old but his rendition of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years,” had everyone in tears when he audition for America's Got Talent.
The Oklahoma teen was adopted as a baby. He grew up surrounded by love and a comfortable life. Nonetheless, Campbell strives to succeed so he can make his mother happy and proud of him. Campbell just wanted his mom to, “see this and hear what I’m saying and hear the song. I think that will make her proud.”
Campbell Walker Fields auditioned for America's Got Talent in front of thousands of people watching in the theatre and millions at home.
All the 14-year-old wanted was for his mom to be watching him wherever she was.
Campbell was adopted as a baby. He got bullied as a kid for having two gay dads.
Although the teen admits that was his norm, Campbell is the first to acknowledge how much his dads have done for him.
He was constantly asked by other kids where his mom was and he didn't know the answer to that.
Campbell wanted to know more about her, why she gave him up for adoption. His dads told him she had three kids before he was born and she wanted a better life for him.
Campbell revealed to the judges he had never met his birth mother, getting emotional immediately.
He performed the song though, keeping his composure while the audience was in tears.
Surprisingly Campbell did not make it to the next round in the competition.
Nonetheless, the judges showered him with compliments and words of encouragement.
