Drew knew all along:

    Sorry for the double post! Actually, after listening to her sing again, she definitely deserves a duplicate post. Lol. OMG, that girl is simply amazing! WOW, what a special, special person God has put here for all of us to be able to enjoy and be a part of her life. I’ll tell you all that we’re some of the luckiest fans in the world to be die hard UK fans, but to have Marlana VanHoose as part of the family is truly a blessing! You just can’t help but think that God must be a Kentucky Wildcats fan to have given us soo much, and to put her beautiful voice on top of all of it, we’ll if that’s not proof, I don’t know what else to tell you. Lol. What a fantastic job Marlana and thanks for the cold chills!! AGAIN!! Hahahahaha
