Daniel Adomako - Italia's Got Talent - 19.01.2013 by amirdj

Daniel Adomako "Rays" son of Deacon and Mrs Adomako makes it to "Italia's Got Talent 2013, his performance aired nationwide today, 19th of January in Italy. None is able to sit or do without tears. From the judges, Gerry Scotti, Maria de Filipi, and for the first time, I can not believe my eyes seeing even Rudy the "wicked" judge all red and wet with tears.
There was something more than his voice as obvious as it was. God was with him. and He sung so well, every single moment was crowned with great applause. Then after doing his song "halleluia", the judges sight blurred with tears but conscious of having their hearing intact, asked him to do a song without music and guess what? Daniel who is a sopranist and sometimes does pop music, chooses to sing no other song than,
"Amazing Grace".... Knowingly or not, Daniel lifted Jesus up before the whole of Italy! this is why I believe that even as he was not ashamed to declare the Lord in the midst of the world, so the Lord will surely lift him up!

He begins with Cohen's '"Hallelujah", then judges demand an encore in cappella. Daniel chooses to sing "Amazing Grace", after recounting how his father who though loves to see him sing, still struggles to understand why God is leading a son of a deacon to "that" direction. Daniel recounts of not having an easy relationship with his "all comanding" father and of how music seem to be his only balm. Then after sharing of how his musical talents might have been passed on to him by his mother, Daniel who is asked to choose a song he loves sings "Amazing Grace" to remind him of how far God's grace has brought him.

L'«Hallelujah» di Cohen, il bis a cappella di «Amazing Grace» e il timido racconto di una vita che vola libera nell'energia del canto. Dieci minuti, due canzoni, poche parole. Così, nel sabato sera da record d'ascolti di Canale 5 (6.476.000 spettatori per uno share del 28,1%), Daniel Rays, giovane cantante bresciano di origini ghanesi, concorrente della quarta edizione di «Italia's got talent», ha emozionato pubblico e giuria nella seconda tornata di selezioni del programma Mediaset, aggiudicandosi l'ingresso al prossimo turno del talent show.

La performance del ventunenne sopranista di Prevalle, presentato davanti alle telecamere con il suo vero nome, Daniel Adomako, ha raccolto una standing ovation interminabile, le lacrime di Gerry Scotti, lo stupore di Rudy Zerbi e Maria De Filippi, così coinvolti da scordare quasi il verdetto dopo l'«Hallelujah», acuta e virtuosa, nello stile pop di Rays.

«È stata un'esibizione veloce, costretta nei tempi televisivi, ma d'impatto - spiega Daniel -. Dopo il pezzo Maria mi ha chiesto di parlare di me, della mia famiglia, cosa che non amo fare in pubblico, prima di farmi cantare ancora».

L'inno di «Amazing Grace» riempie lo spazio con la potenza del canto puro. «Mi hanno fatto scegliere una canzone, volevano ascoltarmi a cappella - continua -. Anche Zerbi, solitamente molto pignolo, è rimasto piacevolmente stupito». La scalata televisiva di Rays prosegue. Ieri anche il popolo del web si è scatenato con i commenti, tutti positivi, postati sulla pagina facebook di «Italia's Got Talent». «Molti mi hanno scritto per congratularsi, un gesto d'affetto che mi dà forza ed entusiasmo per andare avanti», conclude il bresciano, lanciato verso la semifinale nella sfida fra talenti.
