There is no shortage of adorable and talented little girl singers on America’s Got Talent, Season 12. One of them is nine-year-old Angelica Hale from Atlanta, Georgia. Her parents consider her a miracle as she survived double pneumonia and a subsequent kidney transplant (thanks to her mom!). At her AGT audition, Angelica said if she won the $1 million prize she would buy a puppy. She also said that she “wants to be the next Whitney Houston.” And she just might be.
When Angelica sings Andra Day’s anthem “Rise Up,” that’s exactly what everyone in the audience does, literally. On their feet they sway and get teary-eyed. All four judges give Angelica a standing ovation. “This shouldn’t actually happen,” says music biz honcho Simon Cowell. “You’re voice is huge.” America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
