Ronda Felton has faced some challenging times throughout her life, but nothing has taken away from her kind, loving spirit. Ronda absolutely blows the judges away with her rendition of “One Night Only” by Jennifer Hudson, as Lionel is moved to tears by Ronda’s performance. Katy Perry tells Ronda: “You don't have to be strong. You just have to be Ronda and that will take you all the way." We’re beyond excited to see what Ronda has in store for Hollywood Week!

  • As the old Baptist Hymn says” I Stand Amazed of Jesus The Nazarene” this shows that God can do anything but Fail!! This young Lady even after crying , stood there and nailed that song, and I agree with the Judges this is not the best from her !! I had chills then, and I believe in time to come I will feel I’m in Iceland!! Go get your dream young lady!! It’s yours for the asking ! Karen
