Who said only women can sing songs with high notes? Travis Pratt from Georgia proved that men can also belt it high when he auditioned for America’s Got Talent. Because of his girlfriend’s consistent persuasion for him to audition in the show, this macho man finally gave in and absolutely blew the judges away with his talent. However, what happened after his performance was an even more amazing thing that nobody expected!
Travis went center stage looking totally unassuming and as simple as he can be. When Judge Howie Mandel asked him who he was and where he’s from, it was obvious to everyone that he had a really manly voice. And when he said that he was going to sing, I’m pretty sure everyone had certain expectations of how he would sound.
“I’m gonna sing for you tonight a song that my girlfriend loves. She put me up to it. And I hope you like it.
Who could have ever expected a voice like that to come out of his mouth?
When the opening bars of his song played, the judges and everyone in the audience were a bit perplexed because it was the introduction of an opera song! And then, Travis opened his mouth to sing and the audience were instantly blown away. It was classical music, yes, but he was soloing as a soprano!
And when he hit the high notes of the song, everyone just cheered and went wild! His pitch was on point and he was singing flawlessly you would wonder if such voice was really coming out of his mouth! He was a macho man, no doubt about that. But, man, he can sing like a woman!
Travis’ song entitled “O Mio Babbino Caro” from the Giacoma Puccini opera is certainly not an easy song to sing, even for a woman. And yet, this musician from Georgia is absolutely nailing it. Every time he hits a difficult note, Judge Howard Stern could not help but laugh in glee and total amazement!
Travis’ song finally ended and everyone was up on their feet, cheering him on for his amazing and totally unexpected performance. His girlfriend, Elvira, looked really proud of what her boyfriend has accomplished.
Travis was so good that Howie actually asked him if he was lip syncing!
“That was you hitting those notes? You didn’t swallow Jackie Evancho, did you?”, the perplexed judge one again confirmed, even referring to a previous finalist known for her amazing classical singing
Howard, on the other hand, is also having a hard time processing what just happened!
“Well, let me say something. This is the most outrageous audition I have ever seen. And I mean this in the kindest way, Sir. You are a freak but I mean it, like, in a good way.”
Judge Heidi Klum saw Travis as a superstar and that his voice was amazing. Mel B. thought it was perfection!
Travis gave credit to his girlfriend who always pushed him to sing this song in the show. It was Elvira’s favorite, and if it wasn’t for her encouragement, Travis would never have thought of going to the audition.
The judges wanted to meet her so they brought her on stage with Travis. She only confirmed how his boyfriend sings to her all the time and that she really is the one who talked him into doing the audition.
“Don’t you think everybody should hear this?,” Elvira said.
Learning that the couple had been together for five years, Howie commended Travis for having such a smart and special lady by his side. Travis can only agree and actually had something to say to Elvira!
Travis had a huge surprise up his sleeve.
Everybody in the room got really excited and somehow, they were all thinking about the same thing: Travis was going to propose to his girlfriend! As he was holding her hand, Travis wanted to speak the sweetest of words to the love of his life.
“I have known from the first moment I laid my eyes on you…”
But, his emotions got the best of him and just couldn’t wait to ask the magic question! Travis knelt down on one knee and the whole room erupted in cheers!
“Will you marry me?”, Travis soulfully asked.
Elvira was so happy that she was absolutely speechless! She could only nod in agreement but Travis did not need words at all to get the answer he was dreaming of. As the couple embraced in front of the live audience and sealed their promise with a kiss, the people watching them were full of cheers and were very happy to be in that wonderful moment.
Now, we all know that Travis did join the audition to showcase his talent and to show the entire world that he is ready to spend forever with an amazing woman such as Elvira. Travis advanced to the next stage of the competition and he definitely got a great head start in his new adventure as Elvira’s soon-to-be husband It was such a sweet and inspiring moment and something that will certainly never be forgotten on the show.
