What happened to Willie Spence?

We send our sympathies to Willie’s loved ones, friends, and supporters. He had a rare skill and shone a light on millions of people worldwide. He’ll be sorely missed. However, Willie’s death is only being reported by DouglasNow.

None of my family or acquaintances can attest to the reports. 



The American Idol alum was reportedly in Tennessee when the tragedy occurred, but no other information has been made public. 

Willie tried out for American Idol last year during the 19th season of the program. 

He performed “Diamonds” by Rihanna, receiving a thunderous “Yes” from each of the three judges (Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie) and moving on to the next round.

He performed the Ray Charles songs “Georgia on My Mind,” “A Change is Gonna Come,” and “Stand Up” in the season finale. 

Even though the judges were moved by his opulent performance, he finished second to Chayce Beckham because he garnered fewer votes.

We’ll have more information on the horrific event soon. 

Our thoughts are currently with Willie Spence’s family and friends. 

Who was Willie Spence?

On American Idol’s 19th season, Willie Spence has been an outstanding contestant.  He has garnered so much support from the judges and audience that he has earned a slot in the top three and will perform on May 23 during the show’s finale. 

The show’s final episode pits Willie against Chayce Beckham and Grace Kinstler. Willie revealed before his American Idol audition that he had a health scare and had to lose weight to protect his life. 

Willie stated, “I presented myself to the hospital to obtain a checkup because I felt pain in my chest. The physicians informed me that they discovered fluid in my lungs. 

He said I had a 600-pound weight. And realized I needed to pay closer attention to my health when they told me that. So I dropped from 600 to 400 pounds.

Below are some of the amazing singer’s best performances.

In 2021, Willie Spence captivated his audience with heartfelt performances. 

Gospel and huge diva tunes were his areas of expertise. He came in second place behind Chayce Beckham, the winner, in the competition. 

Also, he has been giving concerts and has plans to release new music. Willie and the second-place finisher Grace Kinstler gave a duet performance on the American Idol 20th anniversary special in May.
