Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi and Howie (who, in case you didn’t know, are the judges of the America’s Got Talent 2017 competition) gave a standing Ovation to our own Kechi Okwuchi after she performed Frances’ Don’t Worry About Me in the semi-final rounds of the competition.
Former Spice girl Mel B was moved to tears and had this to say to her about her performance, ‘Your voice speaks wonders to so many people…you are incredible.’
The rest of the judges also praised Kechi’s performance, including Simon who is rumoured to be the hardest judge to please.
Nonetheless, Kechi, in an interactive session with her followers on instagram said it might be a little unfair to the other talents on the show if she wins because she doesn’t want people to vote for her based on her story. She, however, has resigned herself to God’s plan for her in the competition.
‘…there are such amazing people that have amazing talents and I feel some of them may be more deserving. So, then again you never know, God’s plans are not our plan and he can see further than we can so I don’t want to go and say something that might counter what he has planned. Let’s just say what will happen, will happen. Let it just be what God wants.’ She stated.
The 27-year-old singer and survivor of the Sosoliso plane crash that claimed 107 lives in 2006, also talked about the air crash that changed her life forever.
