Tuesday is the premiere of the 15. season of the popular talentprogram 'America's Got Talent', who presented a very surprising participant, who got the 46-year-old talent judge Heidi Klum to break down in tears.
It came to pass, when the former innocent convicted convict Archie Williams delivered a touching version of Elton John's hit 'Don't let The Sun Go Down On Me'.
the Singer Archie Williams sat innocently in prison in the entire 37 years, convicted of a rape which he had not committed. He was released last year, because the DNA is suddenly revealed that the crime was committed by another person.
It writes multiple media including CNN, The U. S. Sun and Standard,

Heidi Klum tears during Archie Williams's touching audition. And she said the following after the song:
- I'm crying not so easy. But I must tell you that here, I could not let be. It was a powerful song.
Judge Simon Cowell has also posted a video out on Twitter, where you can hear Archie Williams tell his incredible story and hear him sing the song 'Don't let The Sun Get Down On Me'.
For the lookup, writes Simon Cowell:
'I will never ever listen to the song in the same way, after you have sung it. The song has got a whole new meaning for me'.
This is Archie Williams. I will never forget this audition for the rest of my life. And I'll never listen to this song in the same way ever again. pic.twitter.com/UCco7OwdGx— Simon Cowell (@SimonCowell) May 22, 2020
In the television program tells Archie Williams, he was sentenced to 80 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
On the morning of the 9. december 1982 was a 30-year-old white woman raped and stabbed with a knife in his home. I was arrested for the crime the 4. January, tells Archie and adds:
- I could not believe that it happened. I was indeed innocent. But I was a poor, black boy. I had not the economic possibilities to defend myself against the state of Louisiana.
During the trial, there were no fingerprints that matched my fingerprints. There were three people that testified that I had been at home when the crime happened. But I was nevertheless convicted.
CNN writes that Archie during his sentence in prison spent a lot of time to sing, and that he also several times on tv as 'America's Got Talent.
- I saw America's Got Talent in prison, and I tried to visualize that I even participated in the program.
And now Archi big dream come true.
