During the audition round, Jake Carlson performed “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz.

He received positive feedback from the judges; Amy Shark, Marcia Hines, and Kyle Sandilands, thereby progressing to the next round.

This is the favorite song of Jakes’s brother and dedicating it to him, Jake stated:

“My brother was diagnosed with autism when he was three years old. We didn’t know how to help him. He didn’t know what he needed help with. The music became kind of a tool for that.”

Judge Amy Shark praised Jake for his wonderful performance by saying:

“He’s lucky to get a brother like you, that was just so beautiful. You are amazing.”

Jake then received three ‘Yeses’ from Amy Shark, Marcia Hines, and Kyle Sandilands.
