Good news! Nigeria’s Kechi Okwuchi made it to the Judges’ cut of talent show: America’s Got Talent.
The 2005 Sosoliso Plane crash survivor advanced to the next stage after her rendition of John Hiatt’s “Have a Little Faith in Me“. Her performance was met with a standing ovation from the audience and judges. Simon Cowell, one of the judges on the show assured her that she made it to the stage not because of her story but her incredible talent.
Kechi shared photos from where she watched the show herself with kids at the Shriner’s Hospital for Children at Galveston. She posted:
Tonight was overwhelming…idk. I got to watch the show with all the @shrinershospitals kids, fellow burns survivors, and it was just so fulfilling…and now. Live shows, huh. I’m just so grateful to God, guys, for allowing me to get this far, and I’m eternally grateful to Seal and Simon for saying the words I needed to hear: that I deserved to be on the show based on my voice, not just my story. And thank YOU all, for being with me through this journey ❤️❤️ and finally, thank you @agt !! Cos even if it ends here, my dreams have already come true! @howiemandel @heidiklum @officialmelb@simoncowell @tyrabanks
