Or a torn pair of jeans, super skinny, stretch, hidden all the way back in the wardrobe of an 18 year old who can hardly squeeze into it, let alone close the button. But he can’t throw them out. Because those were the pants he wore when he was 14 and sang at the blind auditions for ‘The Voice kids’. Those were the pants the judges saw when their chairs turned around and all three of them begged him to join their team. It was a crucial moment for this 14 year old boy with the braces and the big voice. He didn’t win the contest, but it definitely changed something. He tasted fame and being desired and he knows what it feels like to ALMOST get there. It might not have been the start of stardom but it certainly triggered a deeper desire to become a serious artist. And not least it marked an irreversable step away from childhood into adulthood. That’s why he cannot throw away those pants.
