Kaitlyn Jackson Blows Away American Idol Judges with Original, Personal Song

by at . Comments

Kaitlyn Jackson got American Idol Season 13 off to a very strong start this week.

The 15-year old New Jersey native sang an original song she wrote in honor of her grandfather, who suffered a heart attack while watching the aspiring singer perform at a recent county fair.

Jackson's grandfather survived that incident, but passed away before Kaitlyn could blow away Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban with "Another Angel."

“I can start the voting process by saying 100 percent absolutely,” Connick said in response, to which both other panelists agreed.

And for good reason. Be impressed and inspired by Kaitlyn Jackson now:
