Grab those tissues, yet again, for 19-year-old Ronda Felton’s American Idol audition.
Watch as Felton performs “One Night Only,” as sung by Jennifer Hudson in Dreamgirls, ultimately moving Lionel Richie to tears.
Ronda, you um, you had to take it I was doing really well until you came in and did something that no one has done tonight, which is touch me to the point of making me cry, okay. Every once in a while, life happens and then you figure, how do I get out of this situation and God provides a crack in the wall – just a crack – just like every other crack that’s been there forever, but that crack is just enough for you to get through. And, my dear, you just found that crack, okay, because that was the moment that will change your life.
Richie even took to Facebook to praise the young talent.
