Jahmene praises his mum for being his rock

Jahmene Douglas had the shock factor for X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos on Saturday night’s launch show and he gave Nicole Scherzinger goosebumps.

Asda supermarket Jahmene, 21, from Swindon, who admitted he was so nervous he was worried he was going to wet himself, had the audience on their feet with his sensational performance of Etta James’ song At Last.

‘I would love to be able to reply to every one ,’ Jaheme tells his Facebook friends.

‘Thank you all so much for the tremendous support, I’m extremely grateful and thankful for such overwhelming love.

‘I hope I can do every thing in my power to give it all back through my singing I hope by me getting up there at least one person will stand and pursue their dream.

‘Peace, Light and Love! Many Blessings x x x.’

Jahmene finds strength from his faith in God and the devotion of his mum, who cried as he was praised on the show.

‘Couldn’t have done any of it without my beautiful mother 🙂 ,’ says Jahmene.

‘My rock and source of unconditional love.

‘Don’t take those you love for granted, let them know how much they mean to you. .’
