Front-Runner Crystal Bowersox sings "People Get Ready" on the American Idol Top 7 Show

America's favorite Idol Crystal Bowersox sings "People Get Ready" on the American Idol Season 9 'Inspirational Song Week' show. "People Get Ready" was written by Curtis Mayfield for The Impressions in the year after the civil rights March on Washington. For many, the song captured the spirit of the march -- reaching across racial and religious lines to offer a message of redemption and forgiveness. Many incredible singers have covered "People Get Ready" - across every musical genre - including Eva Cassidy, Aretha Franklin, Seal, Jeff Beck, The Doors, The Housemartins and Bob Marley. Guest mentor Alicia Keys (who recorded "People Get Ready" with Lyfe Jennings for the Glory Road Original Soundtrack) said "I know people are gonna love this performance." She was right, Crystal not only brought the audience to it's feet with her passion, she also brought many to tears as chills ran down their spines. The Name Crystal Bowersox can now be added to the pantheon of "Greats" who have sung this amazing, inspirational song.

I have read on some other blogs about the crying at the end, I wonder if any of those folks have ever been grateful for things in their lives and been overcome with that gratitude. I for one have and fully understand her tears of joy for what she has been given. I say again Crystal you are a winner and a person with a God given talent that we all would like to have.
