Tampa, Florida -- The voice coming from inside the House of Prayer Church in Lutz must belong to an angel. It is beautiful.
That voice belongs to 14-year-old Rashad. He's been singing since the age of 3. Rashad says it's taken him a while to learn how to "work" his voice. Clearly he's learned, because he sounds amazing.
He's also willing to suffer for his art by drinking olive oil before he performs. Rashad doesn't like the taste of it, but he says it makes his throat feel better.
Looking at his face while her performs is a good indication of how hard he's working to hit every note just right.
He says he loves gospel and R&B songs best.
Rashad is already showing such great potential. Once he puts his mind to something he gets it right away.
He's been in foster homes for most of his life, but he remains hopeful that the right family is out there for him.
