Boy sings emotional tribute to his younger brother who died in crash

It's pretty brave to step up and open up about a tragedy in the family, especially when you're auditioning for a TV show.

That's what 14-year-old Fletcher Pilon from the Central Coast in New South Wales did in an episode of Australia's Got Talent on Sunday. The teenager wrote and performed a song in tribute to his 10-year-old brother Banjo, who he lost only months ago. Banjo was skateboarding when he was hit by a car in August.

Pilon's touching performance was met with tears and a standing ovation from the crowd and the judges, in awe of his ability to perform so shortly after his brother's death. Not to mention Pilon has an incredible voice. His performance is absolutely spine-tingling.
