CHARLOTTE, N.C. (CBS Charlotte) — Anyone who has walked around Uptown Charlotte has probably heard Nao Barber’s voice.
Barber has impressed people on the street for nearly two years. His incredibly strong voice can be heard from blocks away.
There’s something magical about Barber’s singing ability, and his voice captivates just about everyone. (You can watch a clip of Barber singing on the street here.)
For Barber, being able to share his gift with others is what he considers a miracle. He was shot several years ago, and doctors told Barber that he would never sing again.
Besides singing on the street, Barber recently auditioned for the 2013 season of American Idol. He is a finalist on the show.
Season 12 of American Idol premieres on January 16th and 17th at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
