Disabled Minister Gives Performance of His Life On X Factor - Grab The Tissues!! This is definitely a tear-jerker! Minister Freddie Combs came close to his death in 2009 when he weighed in at over 900 pounds--but the Lord gave him the strength to lose almost half of it. With God on his side and the support of his wife, he is on his path to a healthier lifestyle and was finally able to leave the house to share his incredible God-given voice with the world. His voice is so amazing, that he was told by the judges it was "heavenly." And it certainly is!
