One of the original contestants had to drop out before the night even started, but that set up a schedule adjustment that put them all back on track. By this time two performers would've been eliminated by the popular crowd voting. Only one was eliminated tonight.
Each performer has their own story and their own strength. One performer, Ruth Herrick hadn't really been singing in awhile, but after her husband passed away, she decided to take it up again and there she was on stage in front of hundreds of people singing from her heart.
