Sosoliso Survivor Gets Standing Ovation At "America’s Got Talent" Quarterfinal
Nigeria’s Kechi Okwuchi gave a quarterfinal performance to remember at America’s Got Talent.
The singer performed an inspirational cover of “By The Grace Of God” which has the lyrics “By the grace of God/ There was no other way/ I picked myself back up/ I knew I had to stay,” and “Now every morning there is no more mourning/ Oh, I can finally see myself again/ I know I am enough/ Possible to be loved.”
Her performance drew a standing ovation from the judges which left her in tears.
“You are a survivor, you are an inspiration,” Mel B said. “You give people hope and passion and belief.”
