So Amazing …And So Sad

I admit it. I’ve been watching the X-factor. It’s not because I like reality shows. It’s not because I like singing competitions, but because of this young girl:

At the end of the video, when she got the four yeses, did you hear it? Did you hear what she told the judges when given such a huge opportunity? Did you see the grace she displayed?

“Thank you, I won’t let you down.”

Such spunk. Such grace. Such hope and life. Such Maturity. Such a story that I couldn’t help but to root for her.

Seeing someone, so young, with so much confidence, with such a fire within, a light that carries forth, it’s breath-taking, and it’s inspiring.

And what a voice. It’s amazing.

Tonight, she was in the bottom two by number of votes, still a model of grace and confidence, with tears in her eyes, she still had a smile on her face. She assured one of the judges, “Please don’t cry, I’m good with anything.”

And the judges deadlocked; so America sent her home.

I still think she’s amazing. I really hope this isn’t the end of the line for her. She has such promise

    • She is so very talented. I really hope that’s not the last time we see her. She’s an incredibly personable 13 year old. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and welcome!
