My performances have been for him, whether he wanted it or not.”

And one day in high school, my mom said that she got a call from my teacher and she said, ‘I’m sorry, but your daughter doesn’t have it.’ That was the day my dream died. That’s why I’m thankful that I’m still on this show. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to express myself in a way that I never thought I would be able to express myself artistically. And I look forward to reaching the finals next week and being able to continue to inspire any child or adult who thinks they don’t have it. Because I promise you, you got it. You just have to unmask it. If my voice teacher is watching, don’t change the channel. Because proving you wrong one day has kept me going all these years. This one is for you dream killer!”

We knew that going our separate ways was the best decision at the time. It was a good thing for us. It really gives you perspective and a break. And you can find yourself again. When we met, it was as if no time had passed. And that bond is what gets us into the semifinals. We’ve won other awards in our lives, but it’s been a long, long time.
