Jessica Phillips has been taking care of her boyfriend since he had a stroke
The American Idol auditions in Portland, Oregon Feb. 1 didn’t blow us away, but we were deeply touched by the lovely, Jessica Phillips, and her heart-wrenching story.
Jessica’s boyfriend had a stroke nearly one year ago that landed him in the hospital for more than a month. When he came to, not only did he not recognize Jessica, but he couldn’t speak either. Since then, Jessica, 25, has acted as his caretaker, which she calls a “different kind of love.”
The upbeat and charismatic singer sang “Again” by Faith Evans and impressed the judges. We enjoyed the performance, but aren’t 100% sure she’ll get past Hollywood week.
