Pamela Cook's Heartbreaking Audition Leaves Judges Amazed
Holly Reyes 1/21/2016
Pamela's audition captured the judges' hearts instantly. She overcame cancer while pregnant, but it's her voice that set her apart. After turning 30 years old, she decided it's never too late to chase her dreams, and if she doesn't take the opportunity while it's in front of her, she may never get that chance again.
She held on to the saying, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." When she was almost half way through her pregnancy, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was the most determined mommy to stay strong and keep up with her treatments to restore her health once again before her baby boy came.
Now, she's a cancer-survivor and wonderful mommy to her boy Zion. She's always had a passionate love for music, and when she sang "Because Of You" by Kelly Clarkson, all the judges knew she was a shining star. Her voice was empowered by sincerity, and the judges knew that the hardships in her past have helped shape her not just as an individual, but shapes her music as well. They fell in love with her story and her voice, and when her song ended, she received a big hug.
