Cancer Survivor Who Sang with Garth Brooks Recording an Album

Disney/Mark AshmanThe Virginia cancer survivor who gained notoriety after Garth Brooks brought her on stage to sing with him at the Richmond Coliseum in November, is recording an album.

Danielle El-Jor got her big break when she met Garth Brooks during a meet-and-greet arranged by a local country radio station. Brooks was so impressed with her he invited her to join him the following night.

Now, WTVR reports the Midlothian High School graduate is collaborating with a producer at Sony on four original songs for an album she hopes will land her a record deal. 

“Something just clicked,” she says, “it was amazing.”

El-jor was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2014. She was supposed to audition for The Voice but her chemotherapy treatments forced her to miss out.

El-jor was given a clear bill of health this year.

You can keep up with Danielle's progress via her Twitter and Instagram.
