WorldView: Lazaro Arbos Auditions – American Idol Season 12

| On 19, Jan 2013

Watch Lazaro Arbos’ American Idol audition Thursday.

The Cuban native and Florida resident has had to overcome a speech impediment since he was six years old, which impacts his speech, but not his singing. The judges were clearly moved by the performance and gave him a unanimous yes sending him to the next round in Hollywood.

“He went through a lot of therapy, but he never improved” said his mother Gisela Andraca. “When we got to the U.S., his stutter got worse to the point where he couldn’t speak and I had to say everything for him.”

“Speaking with a stutter is really hard, the things that normal people would think would be so easy become so hard for me,” Arbos told the judges.

Lazaro’s stuttering problem made his childhood a lonely time in his life.

“I had no friends in school so I had no one to hang out with and had to stay home,” Lazaro told America on Thursday night choking back tears.

Since he’s always alone and has few friends, I think music is his life and I think without it he wouldn’t know what to do with his life,” said his father Reinaldo Arbos.

“Normally when he wouldn’t be able to tell me something because of the stutter, I would just say ‘sing it to me,’ ‘sing it to me,’” said his mom Gisela Andraca.

      I think Lazaro Arbos had a great audition on my favorite
      primetime show American Idol. I’ve been watching the show for several years and
      I never miss an episode. I enjoy great primetime shows with my wife when I get
      home. I use my PrimeTime Anytime feature, which will record all four major
      networks on one TV with my DISH Hopper DVR. I no longer have to pick and choose
      shows and I can play them back within the next eight days. I thought this was the
      best feature available from my employer DISH. I’ve been able to watch new shows
      I never knew about and I’ve started to enjoy. This keeps things simple and
      allows me to watch my recordings on any TV too.
