Angelic! Cassandra Coleman Is A Voice The World Has Never Heard! - American Idol 2021
Cassandra Coleman walked into the American Idol audition ready to put her fears and insecurities aside and pursue her life-long dream of singing and performing, and boy...did she deliver! According to Lionel Richie, Cassandra’s performance was as “angelic as it’s gonna get.” Luke Bryan tells Cassandra she’s “a new voice the world has never heard before.” Lionel wants Cassandra to remember this one thing: Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Will Cassandra take Lionel’s words of wisdom to heart going into Hollywood Week?

    I would love to see the full version of this. I heard her say in an interview that the producers edited her aired audition segment for brevity (no doubt they do that for many, if not all contestants). For example, this segment makes it seem as if Lionel assumes she plays the piano, but she said he asked her at one point if she played the piano. She also said she did not begin playing immediately after sitting down, but asked them if she could take a moment to gather her thoughts and decide what to play, and then began playing one of the first songs she ever learned. Perhaps the cut segments wouldn't add a great deal to the aired audition video, but I think it would be interesting to see. At any rate, I wish her the very best, both during and after Idol.
