Sweet Holly wanted to go back to dancing, but her doctors did not know when or if that would ever be possible for her. The team created a routine to make her dream come true. Rise Dance Crew On Britain’s Got Talent.
One judge asks how it feels to be back in Manchester and Holly tears up and responds that this is the first time she has been in a large room similar to an arena. As the girls dance, Holly is front and center dancing from her wheelchair.

This audition is unlike anything I have ever seen, it is such an inspiration. Just like Holly conquered her fears and succeeded, we too are more than conquerors in Christ. He is our hope.
