Kechi Okwuchi, the America’s Got Talent Semifinalist and Sosoliso crash survivor has said that she doesn’t want people to vote for her based on her story.
Kechi made this statement after a follower on Instagram asked how she would feel if she wins the talent.
She said: “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. Let’s just say what will happen will happen. Let it just be what God wants.”
Watch Kechi perform “Don’t Worry About Me” which she dedicated to her mother.
