Shannon O’Hara, a 17 year old American Idol contestant, was esteemed in high regard by the judges when she landed herself in the top 24 last weekend, and now she’s been nicknamed the ‘spiritual ninja’ of the competition.
Early on in her initial audition O’Hara told the judges she mostly sang at church growing up in her hometown of Mooresville, North Carolina.
CBN have reported that according the Statesville Record, the teen performed her first original song, “Amazing Creator” at Southside Baptist Church.
O’Hara’s early on spiritual training is clearly having an effect on people all over the Country,and even bringing Judge Katy Perry to tears.
Perry, over the past years has been fighting her own spiritual battles and has also related to O’Hara by telling her she knows “exactly what it’s like to grow up in the church.”
She has also praised O’Hara by stating, “You are a secret spiritual ninja.”
O’Hara has been vocal about her faith, and has shared that she’s happy the show lets her stay true to herself.
“‘Idol’ truly encourages individuality,” she told the Statesville Record. “I’ve loved that. I was able to really present myself as I am.”
We wish her all the best and pray that her gift will continue to make room for her.
