It's hard to imagine the degree of selflessness a person has to have or develop within their souls to forgo all personal ambition and desires to instead serve a higher purpose in life, such as being a humanitarian. Moira Therese Kelly is an esteemed Australian humanitarian worker who, in 2001, was awarded the Order of Australia in recognition of her outstanding humanitarian service both in her home country and abroad. Over the years, Moria has adopted several children from impoverished countries with challenging physical conditions. In 2009, she became the legal guardian of Trishna and Krishna, two cranially conjoined twins from Bangladesh.

Moira also adopted two brothers from Iraq named Ahmed and Emmanuel. Both brothers were born with extremely underdeveloped limbs caused by chemical warfare, which impacted them in their mother’s womb. Moira discovered the boys living in the Mother Teresa Orphanage in Bagdad, Iraq, after they were abandoned by their mother in a shoebox. The num decided to bring them home to Australia for medical treatment. Today, Ahmad is a quadruple amputee who’s also an expert swimmer and was an athlete in the 2012 Summer Paralympics. While her son Emannuel would go on to compete in the 2011 season of the X-Factor, sadly, his dream did not come true that year.

But in 2017 the band Coldplay decided to give Emmanuel's mom a special surprise while performing live in Melbourne, Australia. Moira was in the crowd as lead singer, Chris Martin paid tribute to the humble humanitarian. He also brought her son Emannuel on stage for a very special performance of John Lennon's “Imagine.”

Below is Emmanuel Kelly's performance on X Factor Australia that had the judges in tears:


“Imagine” Lyrics by John Lennon

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today… Aha-ah…

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace… You…

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world… You…

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
