Over the weekend, viewers saw the 24-year-old “Body on Me” singer get very emotional during Seann Miley Moore‘s audition on X Factor.
“He walked onto the stage with a meaning, with a message that was about being a misfit and being comfortable,” she shared about why tears were shed.
Rita added, “He loved it and he was passionate about it. He didn’t even have to speak. I felt it. I was so relieved that someone had come on the show and showed that kind of individuality….It wasn’t the fact that he did an amazing performance, which he did, it was more of being thankful for individuality and for people being comfortable in their own skin and with who they are. That’s why I cried.”
