From a tiny village in Sweden, all the way to Hollywood.
Swedish singer Chris Kläfford took the “America’s Got Talent” stage on Tuesday night and blew away the audience and the judges with an emotional cover of John Lennon’s classic “Imagine”.
Kläfford, who won Season 13 of his home county’s “Swedish Idol”, moved people to tears with his performance, which started soft and grew more intense and powerful as he went.
“I love people who can reinterpret a song, and you did something special,” said Simon Cowell.
According to his Instagram feed, Kläfford is also touring this year with the Swedish pop group Gyllene Tider.
