John Orozco Sings "Rent"

John Orozco has been a national champion, a world medalist and an Olympian. He also has a secret talent for music.

In this video that I randomly discovered on Tumblr, John is showing off his vocal chops by singing "Take Me or Leave Me" from the musical Rent.
The musical, by the late Jonathan Larson is based on the opera, La Boheme and follows the story of a group of twenty-something bohemian artists in New York City in the late 1980's.

John dedicates his performance to Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber. I think John should submit this video to the producers at the X-Factor.  I wonder what Simon Cowell would think of John's musical ability.
