We all have our own way of dealing with loss. Josh Daniel lost his best friend unexpectedly two years ago. The 21-year-old mechanic auditioned for the British version of the *X Factor* with a rendition of Labrinth’s, “Jealous.” Daniel says that he interprets the song differently: he feels jealous that his friend is happy in heaven while he is left here. When Daniel performs the soulful song, even the notoriously grouchy Simon Cowell, aka Mr. Nasty, is moved to tears. This is one of those rare performances where you can feel the raw emotion of every note and the healing power of song.
