    The song is dramatic, intense and for him to be so young, he did a good job. There’s a part that for me was pitchy and his accent does not let the song shine even more, but I am not complaining. I have goosebumps all over every time I listen to him. The song is about the sadness of a man in love who’s being able to survive the absence of the lover with the thought of her and the happy moments by her side.

    You are right that he brought it and he had control of the entire song. Angel Garcia has not been "Given" his talent. He has been working hard under the advice and discipline that he gets from his father who inspired him. I looked him up and found out that in fact, he has been singing on talent shows since he was only 7. He was on La Voz Kids in 2014 and sang mariachi style songs.
    His emotion, his vocal control, his professional gestures and the power and timbre of his voice enabled the crowd, who did not understand his words for the most part, to also become emotionally involved. That's why the gave him a standing "O."
    Here is a site with the Spanish lyrics written on the screen while he is singing them. The part he sang as with all of the AGT auditions, is only a small section from a much longer song>
    The song he sang is called "El Triste" (The Sadness) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEpT6sS5zMw The most famous singer to perform this song was Jose Jose and he did it first in 1970.
    Here is my translation of the lyrics Angel sang inEnglish:
    The Sadness
    How sad it was to tell each other goodbye
    When we were adoring each other the most . . .
    Until the swallows flew away
    Warning us of the end.

    They don't know that thinking ("They" refers to people who are telling him to get over his lost love and to go on with his life.)
    About your love, about your love . . .
    I have helped myself to live on . . .
    I have helped myself to live on . . .

    OOH!
    OOH!

    I have helped myself to live on . . .
