  • Very sad story, fantastic voice and delivery !! It would be amazing to see what she could do on the show !! What’s even more sad, being so morbidly obese at 20 😢.. considering her family history I would make it a priority to get healthy .. we want you to stay with us and sing for a very long time !! 😍 GOOD LUCK 🍀

  • Double Leo!!! I'm Leo and my daughter was my 23rd birthday present...she's on 13 and I'm on 14...since it was a scheduled c-section, I asked the doctor to go one more day to my birthday...she said something that I have figured out over time, she was correct she said "no...children need their own birthday" makes sense...I was wanting to be able to tell her that she was the best birthday present I ever finally dawned on me that I could still tell her that...because, she was just an early present🙂...but, for a long time I could tell my kids "You're my favorite son/daughter" then, they figured out that they were my ONLY son/daughter and said so...y'all, I played that s*** cool...I said, "see, you HAVE to be my favorite"🤣
