Meet Pearland’s Kechi Okwuchi – Plane Crash Survivor Who WOW-ed America’s Got Talent

This Pearlander wowed the judges and crowd and got four YES votes for her performance on “America’s Got Talent”

Kechi and her family relocated from Nigeria the Houston Area so she could be treated at the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Galveston after she was severely burned in a plane crash in which 107 people died.

She had the crowd in tears as she sang last night.  The Houston Chronicle quoted Okuchi about her love of music:

Lying in the hospital bed, bandaged head to foot, not being able to move or do anything else, music was my escape. That’s why it means so much to me,” she said.

“What happened to me was horrible. But I refuse to let it define me. Instead, I draw strength from it.”

Okwuchi earned a standing ovation from Simon Cowell, Howie Mandell and much of the crowd. Many were in tears.

We are TEXAS Proud Kechi!
