Introducing Genavieve Linkowski, 2016 TYCS Runner Up.
We asked her what it would mean if she won the competition, here is her answer.
I grew up listening to strictly orchestral music and opera or falsetto singing – very conservative. Until I started exposing myself to different types of music and ultimately started singing it. I love singing gospel, some country, and some rhythm and blues. Those are the genres that I sing the best! It means so much to me to have my voice! I know very well that it is a God-given gift, and I want to use it for Him!
The testings in my private life have prepared me, and now I believe that I am ready for a public ministry. It would mean so much to win because it will help point me in the direction of doing what I was born to do, which is using my voice to glorify God and inspire others. This is also my first competition I’ve ever done vocally, so it would mean a lot to win. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
