Can you believe Ramiro Garcia can sing as well as he can? Will he get further than Hollywood week?

We’re getting closer and closer to being through with the American Idol auditions (thank goodness!), but one guy in particular caught our attention Jan. 27.

Ramiro Garcia was born without ears (well, technically without a left ear and only a right earlobe), so they thought he would be mute and deaf. However, somehow the doctors were able to construct ears for him and now he hears, talks AND sings.

“You’re a powerful example to say the least and you can sing,” Steven Tyler praised him after his version of “Amazing Grace.”

“I love you said you’re used to being the underdog. I’m hopeful, man, I’m hopeful,” Randy Jackson raved, as they put him through to Hollywood week.

Do YOU think he’ll make it further? Sound off below!
