- Kechi Okwuchi, a plane crash survivor, has voiced out about the votes casted in her favour
- She does not want people to vote for her out of sympathy in the 2017 America’s Got Talent
Kechi Okwuchi, a Nigerian lady who survived the Sosoliso plane crash, has raised concerns over the voting procedures in the 2017 America’s Got Talent which she is a part of.
The brave lady said she does not think it is fair for her to be voted for simply because they know her story. Okwuchi who has gotten to the semi-final stage of the competition chatted with her followers on Instagram where she was asked how she would feel on winning the competition.
Okwuchi who is 27-years-old said she would be glad if she emerged the winner. However, she thinks it would be unfair to the other talented people on the show as she thinks people are most likely to vote for her because of her story.
On this note, she said she does not want people to vote for her based on the things she has been through. She then said it would be good for God’s will concerning the competition to be done.
“It would be amazing to make it to top 10 but honestly if I make it that far, I think that is probably where I might stop just because I feel there are some people there who are good. There are a lot of singers and a lot of us know how to sing.
I am so grateful to get this far but I feel like if I win it might be a little unfair because I don’t want people to vote for me based on my story and how much they like me and feel they are inspired by me. The main part of the show is the talent part and there are such amazing people that have amazing talents and I feel some of them may be more deserving.
So, then again you never know, God’s plans are not our plans and he can see further than we can so I don’t want to go and say something that might counter what he has planned. Lets just say what will happen will happen. Let it just be what God wants.”

There were 109 passengers on the plane when it crashed. Okwuchi and one other lady were the two survivors.
If you are an ardent fan of the show, be sure to watch out for the brilliant performance of the tough fighter who just would not give up.
