Monica Michael had a lot to prove on the audition of the X Factor UK. The young woman indeed had a troubled past, she rebelled and acted out, but she’d never let her past dictate her future!
She came into the audition with a song that she had written for her sister Natalie. In the video below, Monica explains: “She witnessed me going off the rails and that obviously affected her. And if she did do the things I did or the rebellious things that I went through, it would break my heart. So, I just want to let her know that I’m there for her.”
She adds, “If I were to get four yeses from the judges today, it would definitely inspire her to achieve, you know, what she wants to achieve in her life and also make my family proud of the fact that I changed my life around and went for my dreams.”
She walks over and introduces herself to the judges of The X Factor UK, and she never forgets to mention that this song is for her younger sister! But out of nowhere, Simon raises his hand and cuts the music.
What happens next? Actually, it’s a little hard to explain with words. Well, maybe it isn’t but checking out the video and seeing for yourself is a much better idea.
