America’s Got Talent: I don’t want people to vote for me based on my story – Kechi Okwuchi says after her amazing Semi-finals performance

Nigeria’s very own Kechi Okwuchi gave yet another amazing performance last night on America’s Got Talent for the semi-finals.

The Sosoliso crash survivor said she doesn’t want people to vote for her based on her story.

Kechi held an interactive session with her followers on Instagram on Tuesday.




Asked how she would feel if wins the show, she said she feels it would be a little unfair, because she won’t want people to vote for her based on her story, and there are better singers on the show.

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. Lets just say what will happen will happen. Let it just be what God wants.

Asked about the Sosoliso plane crash, she said she remembered bits and pieces.

She said:
I remember bits and pieces.
I don’t remember the impact of the plane because that must have been when I blanked out or something. I remember being on the plane and feeling like everything was fine and I was with my friend who lived next door to me.
I remember when the pilot made the announcement that we would be landing like 20 minutes at the airport that we would be heading to.
I remember when the plane started really getting crazy and the turbulence started getting like way too much.
I remember feeling this out of body experience. It looked like a movie.
I remember holding my friend’s hands and she was asking what we should do like should we pray or something.
Then there was this loud weird metal sound and I woke up in the hospital five weeks later in South Africa. There were 109 passengers on the plane and 60 of them were fellow students from my school. I was in a boarding school.
Two people survived. Myself and the other lady that I did not know before the plane crash.
Kechi performed the Frances song “Don’t Worry About Me” and the singer, who survived a plane crash that killed nearly all of the other passengers, left the judges speechless.

After the performance, judge Howie Mandel said “I’m never speechless. I can’t do what I want to do. All I want to do is hug you and I want to hold you. That’s all. I don’t have words”.

Simon Cowell said “I’m sharing the sentiment here. I don’t want to judge this… [but] it was your best performance by a clear mile.”

The performance had judge Mel B in tears.
