Video: Kechi Okwuchi, a Nigerian Sosoliso plane crash survivor thrills the America’s Got Talent audience
Watch Kechi Okwuchi, a Nigerian Sosoliso plane crash survivor thrill the America’s Got Talent audience with her mellifluous voice.
She comes up on the stage, looking…”Oh, which mild word will I use to describe her look?” Well, you sure know how a plane crash survivor would look after the horrific incident.
From her looks, the judges and of course I, were thinking it was going to be one hell of a performance. Wouldn’t we do other better things with our time? I’ve got to cook dinner for my wife, come on. That’s none of your business anyway, you know that. That’s the way we are.
When she opens her mouth, even before she sang, we had all adjusted our seats for a thrill. That voice had a bomb in it; it was more than mellifluous. Her outstanding performance got the audience standing on their feet, clapping and cheering. Watch the video and see for your self.
Kachi graduated with a First Class from the university of Thomas Houston Texas on May 16th, 2015 as reported by Nigerian Monitor. She was subsequently inducted into 6 academic honour societies. She majored in Economics.
She’s a survivor of the Port Harcourt bound Sosoliso flight that crashed on the runway, killing 107 out of 109 people on board. She is one of the only two survivors in the plane. The incident happened on 10th December, 2005.
Kechi has had more than 100 surgeries, including skin grafts in the US as a result of the severe burns which had all over her body according to Nigerian Monitor. This didn’t stop her from reaching for greatness.
Kechi has taught me a life-long lesson; don’t give up on your dreams no matter what.
