Kechi Okwuchi Performs “Conqueror” on Pickler & Ben

In 2005, when she was 16 years old, Kechi Okwuchi was traveling with 116 people on Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145, which was flying from Abuja to Port Harcourt. The plane crash-landed at the Port Harcourt International Airport in Nigeria, costing the lives of nearly all the passengers. There were only two survivors; one of them was Kechi.

While recovering in the hospital, Kechi realized her voice had changed. She found she could sing better than she ever could before! She wowed the judges and audience alike on America’s Got Talent, and here she is performing Estelle’s song “Conquerer” on the Pickler & Ben stage.

Before her performance, Kechi discussed the realization that her singing voice had changed, what her recovery has been like, and how the love and support of friends, family and faith got her through her worst days.
