Before singing her version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking out Loud’ she narrated to the judges and audience how her love for singing began. ‘I want to share my voice with AGT. I was in a plane crash when I was 16 years old, which took the life of 107 out of 109, which left two survivors. I was one of the two survivors.”  Responding to Simeon Cowell’s question on how she has managed to deal with the trauma, she said, “Lying down in the hospital bed with bandages from head to foot, music was my escape and that’s why it means so much to me.”
