Joshua got the surprise of his life tonight, when his favorite artist in the world Fantasia wished him Happy Birthday!  His dad was there and came up on stage and hugged him.  It was another great night for Joshua.  Akon, who by the way discovered Lady Gaga, said Joshua's voice is ridiculous, adding "With his tone, he can pierce through people's hearts."  He's right!  Joshua is a beast!
