He first shot to fame earlier this year with his inspirational audition singing Elton John's 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me' on America's Got Talent.

Then he stunned the show's judges with his emotional rendition of Westlife's hit 'Flying Without Wings.'

And now Archie Williams is back with another powerful performance.

Archie - who was wrongfully imprisoned for 37 years for a crime he did not commit, after a woman was stabbed and raped in her home in 1982 - took to the stage to perform a moving cover of the Beatles' 'Blackbird.'

Dressed in a burgandy three-piece suit, Archie belted out the powerful lyrics of the 1968 tune written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

Following his performance, Heidi Klum said: "When I heard you sing this, too, I hear it differently than I've ever heard the song before. Now, it seems like the Beatles did write that song for you, Archie.

"It's your story and you're flying. Actually, you're not flying, Archie, you're soaring."

Howie Mandel added: "Archie, only one act is going to win tonight, but I feel like you're already a winner.

"You know, you won your freedom, you won justice, you won the dream of coming from a tiny cell to the biggest stage on earth … And you look good in that suit."

So beautiful.
