Willie Spence is high school senior (18). He is in the choir and an active member of the community and church. He is a member of 4-H as well.
He first realized he had a gift when his mother called him to sing at his grandfather’s church in Florida. He sang Amazing Grace at Sunday service at 6 years old and got addicted to the way people reacted and told him he had his gift.
His mother was told she would never have a child. But then after 7 years, she got pregnant with Willie, after losing a son her husband had a different marriage. When he was born, he wasn’t expected to make it. His father cut the umbilical cord and he stopped breathing. about 20 minutes later, they finally revived him. He was short of breath and struggled to breathe and yet now his breath is what he credits to having the gift in his voice.
His ultimate dream is to impact young people to go for their dreams no matter what obstacles they may face.
