At her home in Houston, Texas, Kechi gave viewers a look at supportive letters written to her by the families of her school mates who didn’t survive the crash. They were letters that encouraged Kechi to stay strong as she underwent numerous rounds of surgeries and medical procedures to save her life following the tragic accident.
“I’ve always felt a responsibility to the people that lost loved ones in that plane crash, and it pushes me to do all the things that I do,” she shared. “I want to make them proud. I want them to see that this life that was saved that day was not saved in vain.”
After performing twice earlier this season, the talented singer picked a song that seemed to speak volumes toward her own personal struggles — Katy Perry’s “By the Grace of God.” The emotional ballad was the perfect showcase for her flawless voice, and she was brought to tears as she finished singing.
