Joanne Borgella was a talented Haitian American Artist and a plus size fashion model who modeled for top brands like Ashley Stewart, Macy's and Nordstrom and has been featured in Seventeen, Essence and InStyle, according to dailyvenusdiva.com

Back in October 2013, Joanne Borgella posted a video on her Facebook page announcing to her fans that she was diagnosed with cancer.

The time that Joanne Borgella spent on American Idol was a great moment for all young Haitians in Haiti in America and all over the world. it lifted their spirit and made them believe they could achieve big things if they put their mind to it.

We were so inspired that we released a Haitian American Idol web site in her honor for all her Haitian Fans out there...

Rest In peace Joanne Borgella...

I think she was one of the most beautiful young woman, that family had lost. Haiti also lost too from her living this world.

We haitien need to open more I didn't know she was haitien until now. It's look like every haitien is hiding something from each other.

We need think this world we are living in is short we can't hide behind a blanket still.
