Meet Eli Mattson, the soulful singer who brought audience members to their feet with his magical performance on America’s Got Talent. See his photos and video here.

America’s Got Talent season 3 has just begun and the second round of auditions aired tonight. Among the many hopefuls was 25-year-old Eli Mattson, who had traveled over 2000 miles riding by bus. Eli played in local bars city to city in order to raise money for his bus tickets.

Stepping onto the stage wearing a hat and cool confidence, Eli won over audience members with his moving performance. Singing “Walking in Memphis” while playing the keyboard, Eli Mattson left audience members energized and judge Sharon Osbourne choked up. All judges gave him a yes, of course passing Eli on to the next round. Eli will compete against many other talented hopefuls as the reality show progresses, but I think he can make it pretty far.
