Willie Spence has conquered many challenges this past year and his American Idol audition wasn’t about to be one that he didn’t absolutely SLAY! After performing Rihanna’s “Diamonds” for Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, Lionel gives Willie a standing ovation. Luke was all smiles during Willie’s audition, telling him that he didn’t want it to end. Watch here to enjoy Willie’s breathtaking performance, and to hear the vocals that Katy referred to as “a voice that stops people in their tracks.”
