Genavieve Linkowski Returns To American Idol After Losing Her Sister

Genavieve Linkowski returns to American Idol for a touching performance after losing her sister in 2019.

Genavieve is no stranger to American Idol. In fact, she auditioned two years ago and made it all the way to Hollywood. Along the way, her family wholeheartedly supported her as she pursued her dream. And one standout is Genavieve’s sister Corrin who was even at her very first audition.

Sadly, Corrin lost her life after a bad car accident at the age of 18. The death took a toll on Genavieve. “I felt really lost. I had no motivation to sing whatsoever. My passion was gone for a while and my voice was gone for a while. I just didn’t know how to do life without her because I always did life with her. But I know that Corrin would still want me to push forward with this.”

As she fought through tears before the audition, her mom comforted her by saying, “I know Corrin is just watching over you. She’s singing with angels.” Genavieve’s story instantly resonated with the judges and her unique rendition of ‘How Am I Suppose To Live Without You’ was a big hit. Katy Perry said, “I just felt that song through and through. I mean, you were singing that song from your pain that you’ve been through.”

Lionel Ritchie also raved about Genavieve’s strength and vocal performance. “It took a lot of guts to come back and stand up, but I really must tell you, I love that performance.” Ultimately, with Corrin’s spirit by her side, Genavieve earned her ticket to Hollywood. Who else is rooting for this young girl?
