Willie Spence, an American Idol finalist, was 23 years old when he passed away in a horrific car accident.



The gifted performer uploaded a heartbreaking video of him singing the Christian song "You Are My Hiding Place" in his parked car hours before he was killed in an accident.

He continued to sing with his head tilted back and his eyes closed.

Sadly, he died hours later in an accident after slamming his 2019 Jeep Cherokee into a parked semitruck in Marion County, Tennessee.

He had earlier suffered a flat tire while leaving the state on his way home to Atlanta, Georgia, but got it fixed.

The 68-year-old driver of the tractor trailer was pulled over in the emergency lane of the highway and was uninjured.

Katharine McPhee announced Spence's death in a tear-jerking Instagram post on her feed on Tuesday, October 11.

The singer, who performed with him during American Idol, said "life is so unfair and nothing is ever promised."
