American Idol Contestant Meets Her Family for the First Time

I’m not crying…you are.

McKenna Breinholt auditioned in the upcoming season of American Idol with Zach Williams & Dolly Parton’s iconic duet of “There Was Jesus.” (CAIN also has an incredible cover of this song.)

In an exciting turn of events, her performance was followed up by a surprise visit McKenna will never forget. Check this video out ⬇️

This is a very emotional post for me. My sister and I sang “There Was Jesus” at my aunt’s funeral in 2022. This song is very special to my family because even in the hurt, Jesus was and always will be there. To watch this song be performed as a family connects for the first time is bittersweet. God reminded me that no matter what hurt my family faces, we will meet again.

“In the waiting, in the searchingIn the healing and the hurtingLike a blessing buried in the broken piecesEvery minute, every momentWhere I’ve been and where I’m goingEven when I didn’t know it or couldn’t see itThere was Jesus” | Zach Williams & Dolly Parton
