For almost two decades, the talent competition ‘America’s Got Talent’ has found fresh talents to bless the world with their abilities. Audiences marvel over the raw, untapped talent that contestants showcase.
In this video, a 39-year-old woman comes on stage to show her incredible singing ability. Her name is Glennis Grace, and she tells the judges she’s there to show her eleven-year-old son that she will follow her dreams.
Simon Cowell asks what those specific dreams are. Grace replies that she believed it was her purpose to share her voice with lots of people ever since she was a child.
She admits she is a little nervous, so the crowd cheers to let her know they want her to do well. She places the mic on the stand, closes her eyes, and begins to sing.
Grace has chosen “Run to You” as her song. Considering the original singer of this tune is Whitney Houston, it’s a courageous choice. Houston was one of the most extraordinary singers of her time, so singing one of her signature songs is a daunting task.
However, it’s clear from the judges’ faces and the audience’s reactions that Grace was right about her own talent. She hits all the notes that make her version of “Run to You” so moving.
All four judges responded positively to Grace’s performance, and she left the stage with four yeses. Everyone remarked at how much she honestly sounded like Whitney Houston. She picked the perfect song to introduce herself to the world.
