Due to the surprising events from the Live Results Show on Tuesday night, Shekhinah has received tremendous support from fans, former Contestants and current Contestants. She was voted out of the competition and the Judges decided not to use their one and only save.
The 17-year-old remains upbeat and is now focusing on her Grade 12 exams. She tweeted:
