When an Injury Suspended His Navy Career, This Veteran Turned to Singing.


Joining the Navy at only 16, Jay James was ready to set out on the military lifestyle he always knew he would have. But when an untimely injury put a halt on his career choice, he turned to music as an outlet. 

Recognizing that he had knack for singing, Jay decided to tryout for The X Factor. Bringing his adorable daughter along for motivation, we watch his unbelievably emotional audition here. 

Singing "Say Something" by A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera, Jay James melts everyone's heart...including mine! 

I can honestly say I have NEVER seen someone sing with so much passion! Please SHARE his stunningly beautiful performance.
