Evie Clair is the adorable 13-year-old singer on America’s Got Talent who is from a small town in Arizona called Florence (30,770) where there are five prisons, and that’s pretty much it. Her father works at one of those prisons. On stage, Evie reveals that her father has been given a bleak cancer diagnosis. After AGT judge Simon Cowell consoles Evie and encourages her to perform well, she sings the 2011 Christina Perri song “Arms.” It includes the lyric: “You put your arms around me and I’m home.”
Perri wrote the song. It’s her second single from her debut album Lovestrong. She once said it was “about the fight between your heart and your mind.” America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC. Reruns air Fridays at 8pm.
