Jessica Phillips Overcomes Hardships to Advance on ‘American Idol’

Jessica Phillips

Jessica Phillips of Brooklyn, N.Y. has been through a lot in her short life. Her boyfriend, Angelo, of five years suffered a massive stroke and had to be hospitalized for a month and a half. When he finally came to, Phillips said he didn’t know who she was.

Acting as his full-time caretaker, Phillips said her music career fell to the wayside, but that’s not the case anymore. With her golden ticket to Hollywood, Jessica is taking center stage on ‘American Idol.’

After relaying her emotional story to the judges, Phillips launched into ‘Again,’ by Faith Evans. Jessica ran through the song like it was child’s play, almost too easy. But hey, you’ve got to play it safe to get ahead sometimes, right?

The judges made the easy decision to put Phillips through to the next round and Jessica got to deliver the exciting news to her boyfriend, who stood behind the doors waiting for his superstar girlfriend. We liked what we heard from Jessica today and hope to hear her tackle more songs on episodes to come!
