Exonerated after 37 years, Archie Williams auditions for America's Got Talent


Archie Williams Upon His Release

Last night I saw the most uplifting performance I've ever seen on a television show I usually don't pay much attention to.


Archie Williams, wrongfully convicted, wrongfully imprisoned for 37 years, and exonerated based on DNA and the work of the Innocence Project, stood before 3,500 people on national television.


The song of his choosing perfectly fit him as a person. Elton John's Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me.


I can't light no more of your darkness

All my pictures seem to fade to black and white

I'm growin' tired, and time stands still before me

Frozen here on the ladder of my life
