Brian Justin Crum captivates 'AGT' crowd with powerful rendition of Radiohead's 'Creep'
Brian Justin Crum eerily captivates the "America's Got Talent" crowd with his impeccable cover of Radiohead's "Creep." Crum's voice is flawless and pure, but it's when he hits the high note that the entire crowd locks their eyes on performer. Standing center-stage dressed in completely black, Crum allowed his voice be the show-stopper. It certainly didn't disappoint.
Crum's performance commanded the entire room. He purposely gazed out at the crowd with tears gleaning his eyes. Not a single viewer could look away. In fact, the crowd was so engaged with the performance that it took them a moment to break out in applause and a standing ovation at the end.
There is a bit more than meets the eye when it comes to this captivating musician. He has a purpose that is much bigger than performing. The 28-year-old San Diego native is moved to inspire kids, especially those in the LGBT community. Because of the hard times he's faced, he wants to be a guiding light for others who may be in a similar situation.
In an interview with PEOPLE Crum said, "For me, it's really important to inspire the LGBT youth – for them to know that we are a very bullied and a very misunderstood community, but not only does it get better, it gets amazing."
He continues, "If you work hard enough, you can have whatever you want and more. That's where I'm at right now. I'm in a place finally where all my dreams are coming true because I stuck with it."
