The talented singer captured the hearts of viewers across the world with her incredible story, making it to the top 10 of the 2017 edition where she finished sixth, performing her cover of Estelle‘s anthem 'Conqueror.'
The Champions edition of America's Got Talent gave Kechi another shot on the big stage and on Monday night, January 28, 2019, she delivered another outstanding performance that pushed her straight to the finals.
Performing “You Are The Reason” by Callum Scott, Kechi got the Golden Buzzer from judge Simon Cowell, which means the next time we see her on the show will be in the final stages.
She got the Golden Buzzer over the likes of two past winners of the main show — performance artist Kenichi Ebina (2013) and ventriloquist Paul Zerdin (2015).
"I'm going, to be honest with you. I didn't really like it that much," judge Simon Cowell told Kechi before hitting the real Golden Buzzer. "I actually loved it!"
All the best Kechi.
