A Country Girl Disappoints These Judges. Instead, She Brings Them To Church!
Brandie Love has big dreams! She was even “born with the name of a pop star!” When she walks onto the stage, she looks every bit the small town country girl that she is, and her accent proves it! Although she looks like a southern belle, this little lady is hiding a big talent!
Like a lot of hopefuls that audition on these shows, Brandie has never sang before an audience this large, and of course is very nervous. She has a good reason, too! Her boyfriend is about to deploy for the second time and she wants to make him proud! Her family is there to support her, and she is surprisingly graceful when she steps onto the stage. I would be shaking too hard!
The judges didn’t understand her choice to sing a gospel song instead of a country song, but by the end Simon admits that he got “taken to church!” I didn’t expect her to sound as soulful as she did – I must be a secret X Factor judge! I was inspired by her performance and it nearly brought me to tears! Singing “Up to the Mountain” by Patty Griffin, Brandie lets her heart show with the power of the music.
Was she born to be famous? The judges seem to think so. What about you?
