Latino X Factor Contestant, Carlos Guevara, Reveals His Struggle With Tourette's

His performance of “Gravity” by John Mayer received rave reviews from the judges panel of Kelly Rowland, Simon Cowell, and Latinas Paulina Rubio and Demi Lovato. 

Guevara said the experience was terrifying but that he “felt like my music experience was really born out of struggle and out of pure love of music.”

Now that he’s made it past the first round of auditions, the young singer faces the challenge of coping with his disorder through several rigorous rounds of competition. “I think a lot about how could get [bad],” he said, “But this is what I love to do so I’m willing to tell my Tourette’s to shut up and stand behind me. I’m finally stepping out into the light at the end of the tunnel.”

We wish the young Latino the best of luck! Check out his video below:
