When everyone else around could only see my failures, God saw the best in Me… it doesn't matter what I did, because God sees me for who I am…. He knows MY heart..

Mayo said that he often records his rehearsals to listen back and critique himself, and sometimes he posts the videos. For some reason, this particular rehearsal went viral. His anointed pipes quickly resonated with viewers, as the clip has amassed more than a million views on Facebook and more than 40,000 shares.
Officer Mayo has been with the Richmond Police Department since 2005 and now serves as a school resource officer at Richmond Alternative School. Mayo says he hopes everyone who sees the video feels encouraged. “It really doesn’t matter what you’re going through. The song says, “God sees the best in you,” he added.
Mayo thanked everyone on social media for the response!
