PotatoMcWhiskey : This performance genuinely moved me to tears.

who8myfish : He isn't sweating, his entire body is crying.

psuedospike : Saw Charles live and between songs I shouted "I love you Charles" and he looked right at me and said "I love you too my brother" so genuinely it moved me; after the last song he hopped off stage to hug a girl in a wheelchair and preceded to hug half the people in the crowd...he smelled like coconuts and heaven. RIP Charles you beautiful soul.

Lavrentivs : Early metal was very much influenced by blues, so a bit of a "full circle".

Plague Doctor : Jesus christ, this man's soul is 100ft tall and obeys no walls

Chadwick McCollister : Every now and then you stumble across a nugget of YouTube gold. Thank you poster!

Manisora : I find my self in a heavy depression. I don't know when it started, no idea if it ends somehow someday. I can't go to work, I can't meet anyone, I can't love my closest as I usually do. I feel me out and far away from my self. This perfomance...and those words, I would tell them to my self in order to remember how happy I can be, how strong I love my life and how blessed I can feel to have time to live.

William Perry : That scream is from his soul, that's pain you're hearing.

Jordan Mayer : Jesus christ, this is by far my favourite cover of this song by sabbath let alone any sabbath cover, and im a metalhead. This shits truely amazing to hear and witness.

Elliott T : Nothing beats the raunchy, dirty, sandpapery voice of a black man! Not meant in a racist way, but his voice is just, wow...

Steve McNitt : James Brown & Ozzy shagged some girl in this 60's and this man was born.

Benjamin Scott : The "Mama" at 4:37 ... :'(

Schlong Duck Dong : I feel that he never got the recognition he deserved and worked so hard for. We lost a true natural talent

SINderbrick 1 : The people that disliked this are the trash of this earth. How can you say that this isn't a beautiful and amazing version of this song

Zach Draper : Im not crying.... Youre crying!!!!

Monsterforge : I recently lost my dear father and then my precious mother... they passed within 4 months of each other. Their love was too powerful for them to stay apart any longer. I want to thank you so much for making this video available... it means so very, very much to me right now.

clutched010 : It's a saturday in 2018 about to be sunday. Im sitting here listening and feel the pain and emotions through the song. Will keep this with me forever.

Josh Richard : As a Black Sabbath fan, I wholeheartedly approve of this cover. Breathtaking.

Billy Daily : I lost my mamma when I was 13. I offended her with my rebellious ways. She turned her back and walked out of my life. She’s still alive but has never returned to me. I guess by the time I was 13 I had enough mothering. Or so she thought. Ironically it was my interest in Satan that made me exclude her. And Black Sabbath became a huge influence in my life from then on. Still is even though I’m saved now. Love you mamma. Always will. I like this song.

Nelson Leiva : I feel unhappy I feel so sad I lost the best friend That I ever had She was my woman I loved her so But it's too late now I've let her go I'm going through changes I'm going through changes We shared the years We shared each day In love together We found a way But soon the world Had its evil way My heart was blinded Love went astray I'm going through changes I'm going through changes It took so long To realize And I can still hear Her last goodbyes Now all my days Are filled with tears Wish I could go back And change these years I'm going through changes I'm going through changes

Zippy Zayden : This deserves more attention.

Jess Hart : Man, hearing this in his context, with that deeply soulful voice in this simple, stripped down arrangement just /gets me/. I've heard it about thirty times now, and each time I can't help but stop what I'm doing and listen.

Molly Wilkins : "I'm going to change it" - so much better. Thanks, Charles. x

81 H E W P : I miss this man. So lucky to see him twice in my lifetime. My favorite was when he played at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. He had the crowd in his hands. Heavens gain.

nat2nathan2005 : I love how music can translate like this. Different people hear different things in different songs. Beautiful cover of one of my favourite songs of all time.

Desmond Hardison : Didn't Sabbath start out as a blues band called earth so why are people so surprise about a blues man doing Sabbath

Lucas Wilkinson : As a lifelong black Sabbath fan I can honestly say this version is a wonderful cover. Really can feel the pain
