The song ‘Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)’ was released by Hillsong UNITED in 2013. It calls us to place our trust in God when stepping into unknown situations.

When Abi began singing, the scene shifted from a contest to a worship session. It seemed the judges and audience forgot they were at a competition, with many raising their hands in prayer. Abi sang like a seasoned worship leader, using the opportunity to glorify the name of God.

The audience gave Abi enthusiastic applause, moved by her emotional performance. It wasn’t just about her singing; it was a profound act of faith. Although it’s uncertain how far Abi will advance in the show, her impact in conveying a strong message of faith to a large audience was clear.

Seeing faith shared so openly on shows like “American Idol” is inspiring. Abi’s performance reminds us of the strength we find when we trust and call on God, no matter the challenges we face.
