Simon Cowell is a household name throughout the entertainment industry. Those who love watching the American Idol can put a face to the name. Simon has an impeccable ear for talent but is very difficult to please.
Simon Cowell was a judge in Pop Idols in 2002. During this period, viewers in England knew how temperamental the judge can be during auditions.
Simon took a special liking to Calysta Bevier. When Calysta, a 16-year-old girl, took to the stage, she impressed. She is a cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer a year ago. The good news is that she survived, thanks to her bravery. She disclosed this chapter of her life when one of the female judges complemented her “Audrey Hepburn” style. Caliysta told the audience it was not her style of choice. It is a result of cancer.
The song she chooses “Fight Song” further amplified strength for someone her age and the tribulations she went through. She is a young girl, a cancer survivor with a powerful voice and strong vocals. The amazing rendition proves she is an inspiring survivor.
Simon Cowell was touched, and he pressed the golden buzzer and gave a standing ovation to the 16-year-old.
