crying

As soon as Sen. Bernie Sanders started his speech at the Democratic National Convention opening night, he was met with roaring cheers from the assembled delegates, and those self-described as 'Feeling the Bern'. That particular group might have been feeling more of an onion-cutting burn in the convention during his speech, and the Internet didn't hold back on them.

Please tell us this is some sort of sick and perverse joke; or at least that younger generations aren't this far lost in the throes of a technology-addled era?

10-year-old Amelia Poggenpoel reached out and touched Shia Labeouf's soul with the choirgirl pure voice of an angel.

Shia receives no shortage of grief, critical leers, and general public disapproval for his endless montage of hysterical press antics; and when the going gets rough, he gets tough, and dons a paper-bag.

The young Formby School of Dancing and Performing Arts student, Amelia Poggenpoel has her mother Tor to thank for her breakout vocalist performance. Tor told the ECHO: "I started talking about Amelia and how proud I am of her and how sometimes I don't feel that she's loved enough. I don't always have attention to give to her when I'm at work or if I'm tired. I got quite emotional talking about it and they then realized I was in the room with them. They took their headsets off and Shia started welling up. I told them that Amelia has an amazing voice, so he asked if she could sing for him."

From there Amelia was handed the floor, and under the fiery, intensified gaze of Shia Labeouf, she broke out in song with a cover of "Who's Loving You" by Jackson 5. LaBeouf overcome with a flood of emotion was brought to tears, and shortly after the performance's conclusion, went on to embrace Amelia.

The #TOUCHMYSOUL four-day live performance wrapped up a few days ago, after 2,000 people visited FACT in person to watch Shia take phone calls. Oh, also almost 300,000 people tuned in from a live webcam, so, that happened.
