There's a reason why they say some of our talents are God-given. Without Him, there's no way we could possess these type of beautiful skills.
One person who definitely has a God-given skill is Father Ray Kelly. Before going viral due to his stunning singing voice, Father Kelly spent his days as the priest of St. Brigid's and St. Mary's parish at Oldcastle, County Meath, Ireland.
Instead of hiding his singing voice from the world, he decided to share it with millions of people watching at home. With the lyrics to "Everybody Hurts" by REM memorized, the microphone in his hand and his courage summoned, Father Kelly started his audition.
The judges watched eagerly as the priest sang his heart out just feet in front of them. Was his performance going to be enough to move him into the next round?
