America’s Got Talent wouldn’t be America’s Got Talent without a plethora of adorable little girl singers. Remember 12-year-old ukulele-playing Grace VanderWaal who won Season 11 after Howie Mandel hit the golden buzzer for her? Well, in Season 12 there’s another 12-year-old singer who’s equally adorable and talented . Her name is Evie Clair. She’s from Florence, Arizona and she too writes her own songs. (Listen to her “Love You One More Time” below.)
Evie brings a lot of emotion to her music, particularly when she sings the Survivor cover “Eye of the Tiger.” In the video below, she explains that her father Amos used to be a wrestler in high school and it was the song he listened to before matches “to get him pumped up.” Evie sings the song in honor of her father who is battling cancer. The video is part of the family’s GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Amos’ hospital bills. To read more about Evie’s family, visit her mother’s touching blog, Team Amos. America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
