Abu and his family later seek for refuge in Belgium where they have been residing in for quite a while
The 13-year-old boy loves to sing but he had to forgo his passion for a long time when war broke out in Afghanistan
Now, he finally has the chance to continue doing what he loves the most—singing
Abu decided to show off his singing skills on “The Voice” through a heartbreaking rendition of “My Heart Will Go On” and he has impressed everyone including the judges!
According to the boy, he chose the song to perform for his audition stage because he can resonate with the people who lost their lives in Titanic’s tragic incident.
“The people on the Titanic were looking for a new life in a boat going to another country. I think this is very sad. I want to show that I also fled like that,” said the boy
Abu made it to the finale and emerged as the runner-up in the contest.
