Finally, the 12th season of the America’s Got Talent has ended and Darci Lynne Farmer beat our very own Kechi Okwuchi to emerge as the winner.
The 12-year-old won the night with her incredible singing ventriloquist act, bringing her puppet, Petunia, back on Wednesday for a performance of Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better) with fellow ventriloquist Terry Fator, who won season 2 of America’s Got Talent.
Our very own favourite, Kechi Okwuchi, who rose like a phoenix from a terrible Sosoliso plane crash that took 108 lives on December 10, 2005, came in sixth.
It has been an emotional journey for Kechi, who survived the Sosoliso Plane crash in the year 2005. She was just 16 years old when this accident occurred.
Kechi, who was graced to be one of the two survivors, has undergone over 100 surgeries but in all of it, was kept alive by her mother’s love and the love for singing.
We wish her all the best in life as she forges on in her music career.
