Several people in the audience were spotted wiping away tears from their eyes. The lyrics were simple, beautiful and told a story of love and loss.

You're the drive inside my heart, the reason I reach for the stars above

He said my world revolves around you, that's why I call you ‘son'"

The studio audience and the judges responded with a standing ovation, thunderous applause and boisterous cheers.

After showering Matt with praise for his touching performance, the judges gave the young man from Tennessee four yes votes.
