Kechi Okwuchi got a standing ovation from all the Judges of America’s Got Talent; Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell after her performance on Tuesday as another round of semi-finalists performed.
Kechi performed Don’t Worry About Me by Frances after dedicating the song to her mother. ‘All I want to do is hug you…I don’t have words,’ Howie Mandel told her after the emotional performance.
Former Spice girl Mel B was also moved to tears. ‘Your voice speaks wonders, to so many people…you are incredible,’ she told Kechi.
Meanwhile she spoke about her fears on social media saying she felt she might not go far in the auditions.
“It would be amazing to make it to top 10 but honestly if I make it that far, I think that is probably where I might stop just because I feel there are some people there who are good. There are a lot of singers and a lot of us know how to sing. I am so grateful to get this far but I feel like if I win it might be a little unfair because I don’t want people to vote for me based on my story and how much they like me and feel they are inspired by me.
The main part of the show is the talent part and 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 plans 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. Lets just say what will happen will happen. Let it just be what God wants”
