Must See 28/05/2020

In case you haven't watched Archie Williams incredibly emotional performance on America's Got Talent, you should do so here.

The wrongly-convicted man shared his courageous story of how he spent 37 years behind bars for something he didn't do. He would still be in there right now if it wasn't for a DNA test proving his innocence.

Archie stepped out on stage to perform an incredible cover of Elton John and George  Michael's 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me'. The lyrics of the song took on a whole new meaning after watching Archie pour his heart out into the song.

Understandbly, the performance came to the attention of Sir Elton John, and he was so moved by Archie, he tweeted his reaction.

"I was moved to tears when I heard Archie’s story and saw him perform "Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Me". The courage and forgiveness shown by him is truly inspiring. The same spirit that the world found so inspiring with Nelson Mandela. Love, E xx" Elton wrote on his Twitter.
