Ash Ruder and her dad have been through some difficult times together, but that doesn’t stop Ash from gushing over him being a “source of inspiration” for her music. After the judges find out that Ash is about to audition with an original song she wrote about her dad, one that he’s never heard before, they invite him to come in and listen. A beautiful moment is shared between Ash and her father, followed by multiple compliments from Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. Lionel tells Ash that she has “found the only subject that does not go out of style: love.” Three yeses from the judges and Ash is headed to Hollywood!

    We can all thank Grace Vanderwaal for blowing the lid off artists being allowed to perform original music on these shows.

    One thing I know about broken homes and growing up without a father is the kids are the most amazing resilient people who just want a family and won't hold grudges so fathers out there try to find your children because they're waiting for your love

    shorturl.ca/kissxx4h28e Considerazioni ideologiche di ordine superiore, nonche il vettore di base dello sviluppo, rivelano l'urgente necessita di forme di influenza. All'improvviso, vengono smascherati elementi del processo politico.🤩 Tendo em conta a atual conjuntura internacional, a metodologia de desenvolvimento moderna desempenha um papel decisivo nas direcoes de um desenvolvimento progressivo. Somos forcados a partir do fato de que o fortalecimento e o desenvolvimento da estrutura interna e uma experiencia interessante para testar outras direcoes de desenvolvimento.Em particular, o fortalecimento e desenvolvimento da estrutura interna nao deixa chance para as posicoes assumidas pelos participantes em relacao as tarefas definidas! O alto nivel de envolvimento dos representantes do publico-alvo e uma prova clara de um fato simples: a consulta a um amplo ativo e um estagio qualitativamente novo de raciocinio cuidadoso!

    With two daughters in college, who are successful, beautiful, smart, compassionate, and possessing of immense heart this tune and experience wrecked me but I know that my love for them is infinite - Since they were introduced into the world I've always been there for them - I did not have such a life but knew deep in my soul I would be a better man for my family if I was ever blessed enough to have one - I'm not sure what I did along the way over the years to deserve the life I have now but I am forever grateful to have them in my life, always and forever... \m/

    Human beings create human beings all while trying to find their way and guide while it seems you're not gonna make it but if you're lucky and you are blessed with a chance to reconnect and forgive and find a deeper understanding of one another you may just find you are finally getting to truly see one another open and schooled therefore blessed with a deeper Love you never fathomed well that's called love in all its forms there to teach us not only to love what is easy but delve deeper there is no limit to what it can teach us once we accept it's gift of gifts for all that is

      We are constantly surrounded by information insight history but there are two types of learning and one is through information that we can quote and practice the secret till the cows come home but then there is transformative understanding that doesn't need reminding for once you have transformed from a knowing a balance you can't lose then you got it it's a part of your journey where trying and thinking you get it but you ain't got it until you are there in the moment never to be the same

    I relate. My dad never left, he took care of me and my siblings after my mom died but he was still absent. Work, went to his room and drank and did drugs. So I relate so much because we became best friends the last few years before he passed last year when I was 26

    Thankful it’s my day off and I’m not wearing makeup, lol. I was raised by a man I called daddy, who didn’t have to be. My biological father was an alcoholic. Very long story short, I lost my daddy tragically. Almost two years after my mom exactly. It was a few short months later, I almost lost my biological dad. But. God is good. My dad got clean. And today, my father is the most absolute wonderful man. Four years sober and going strong. I have no clue what I’d do without him. He is my rock solid. I felt this song and moment, so deeply.
