Talent shows are one of the best opportunities to discover more about people’s life stories. A heartwarming example of a this is Joseph Whelan’s story.

He talks about how much he loves his son and it’s evident to the audience he is a fantastic father and they are lucky to have each other.

When I look at him, he just lights up my life. Being a father is just the best thing ever. The first time I laid eyes on him, something just changed inside of me. My whole perspective on life changed completely.” – Joseph Whelan.

Winning The X Factor is important as he hopes to make his son proud. So he gets ready to audition.

The female judges are enjoying the eye candy!” Whelan would clearly have no issues finding a new girlfriend as many women in the crowd are whistle at him. Whelan appears to be oblivious to all this female affection being such a modest person.

He laughs into the microphone saying “This is brilliant, mate!” Once Whelan admits he is auditioning for his son the crowd “Awwws.” Then Led Zepplin’s Whole Lotta Love which is a bold choice, begins to play.

Led Zepplin is a part of Whelan’s identity who were from the British midlands, just like him. Whelan start’s singing “You need cooling” and sounds exactly like a rock star.

As Whelan reaches the chorus of the song “Want to whole lotta love” all the judge are convinced his talent! He comes across as a very unconventional singer for the show, and the audience can certainly vouch for Whelan.
