It takes an incredible amount of courage to get up on stage and sing in front of thousands of people. When Andrea Faustini walked on stage and announced his song choice, the judges were immediately skeptical. Whitney Houston was known for her intensely powerful vocal ability and songwriting. It’s apparent that they didn’t believe that he didn’t have the talent for such a powerful song. It only took a moment for him to explain why he chose it. Houston’s song “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” seemed to inspire Andrea significantly. When he first began to sing everyone was stunned. During his audition, Andrea not only performed amazingly well but moved two of the judges to tears in only 30 seconds.
