The show’s finale on Monday, February 18th, saw “America’s Got Talent” season 13 winner, Shin Lim, crowned the ultimate champion. Although Kechi didn’t take home the trophy, she made it into the top twelve, after judge Simon Cowell gave her the emotional golden buzzer that shot her immediately into the final.
It will be recalled that Kechi overcame the trauma of being one of two survivors of the December 2005, Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 crash that killed all of her schoolmates onboard. She contested in the 2017 edition of AGT and was one of the finalists. She has since then become a public speaker and inspiration to other young people who have experienced tragedies.
