Simon Cowell loved the performance, pointing out just how strong their showing was by saying “I don’t see a choir, I see a group of individuals who throughout this competition have done everything with enthusiasm, talent, friendship, and personality. You mean so much to us. This is going to be such a tough competition tonight.”
Thanking the conductor of this brilliant choir, judge Julianne Howe said “There really is no ceiling for you guys. That was unbelievable. Mr. White, thank you so much, especially in the final, giving every single one of them a chance to shine and have moments. You all had specific moments, and then you came together, and you took us to a whole new level.”
Gabrielle Union was happy to share “You represented all the excellence that are in so many people that get overlooked and cast to the side and what can happen when you recognize that you are excellent from birth. And sometimes it’s just a little bit of extra love and attention, and if we give it to all our kids, all of you can shine and you guys shined so bright on that stage.”
Overwhelmed but overjoyed, Howie added “There are no words. What you do is amazing.”
