The 16-year-old high school student from Acworth, Georgia sang this anthem in front of the judges and audience.

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain

Camryn is a strong Christian and wasn’t afraid to proclaim her faith in a national talent competition like this.

“I had to go with my gut on this one,” Camryn says to the camera. “It isn’t the most ‘performance’ song, which is really important in this round. But I do think that the judges will see my heart in it. Jesus is my life, so I wanted to sing a song about the most important thing in my life.”

Camryn’s family can be seen cheering her on as she sings about her faith from the stage. “I felt like I was leading worship in church,” Camryn says after she finishes the song. “It was really awesome!”

Even though she did not proceed to the next round of American Idol, she has stayed true to herself and to her faith. What a marvelous opportunity for a young girl like her to lift up the name of Jesus Christ on national TV.
