Above are links to a very harrowing story which involves a young man who is a singing sensation currently appearing on the X-Factor. Jahmene has without doubt, a superb world class voice which stunned me when I heard it. It is very rare to uncover this kind of raw talent and I do think he has completely amazed people in the UK.
However, in the last week stories have been unravelling in the press about Jahmene's background that have revealed a very traumatic background and one which I know affects many people not just in the UK but also around the world. Jahmene's mother has a blog that focus's on domestic violence and she herself has been a victim of this. Sometimes its very hard for anyone to open up about this and it takes a great deal of courage to do so. Reading Mandy and Jahmene's story will surely affect many people who themselves have been in the same situation.
Mandy has a donations link on her blog. I would like to include it here on this site and should you feel you wish to contribute.
