Lazaro Arbus — you totally demonstrated what true courage is when you stepped in front of the ‘American Idol’ judges and sang, even though you could barely speak.
Lazaro Arbus, you overcame a debilitating stutter when you appeared on American Idol, Jan. 17, and astounded the judges with your soaring rendition of “Bridge Over Troubled Water!”
It must have been so hard for you to stand in front of Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban, and Randy Jackson and know that you would have a challenging time just speaking. You really do have a strong stutter.
You described your stutter as a “roller coaster,” when Mariah asked you about it. “Speaking with a stutter is really hard. The things that normal people would think would be so easy became hard for me,” you explained.
It was such a poignant moment. At 21, you have such a sweet, handsome face and your emotions were easy to read. »
