Meet 13-year old Rion Paige, living with a congenital condition called arthrogryposis multiplex congenita that has left her with permanently damaged arms and also blind in one eye with glaucoma. I have watched this video over and over again…you just have to love her bubbly personality, optimism, courage and positive attitude towards life. I hope she goes far in the competition.
Meet 54-year old Lillie McCloud, mother of three and grandmother of seven. She completely smashed Cece Winna’s Alabaster Box, gave the judges goose bumps and got them emotional in spite of the fact that they were hearing the song for the first time (except for Kelly Rowlands).
Meet Alex 21 and Sierra 22, boyfriend and girlfriend… You’ve got to love their quirkiness and they have also got great chemistry going on not to mention their vocals. Their audition reminded me of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night when he wrote:
“If music be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.”
