There are many talented singers competing on Season 14 of America’s Got Talent, but not many have experience with talent competitions. 14-year-old singer Benicio “Beni” Bryant does. The Seattle native came in second in Germany’s “The Voice Kids” and has plenty of experience on stage. For his AGT audition he sings the Brandi Carlile song “The Joke.”
Beni doesn’t just like Carlile, he knows the three-time Grammy Award winner. He got to sing with her on stage at Tahoma High School, where she returned to perform, although she dropped out of school to pursue her music career. See video below. And Carlile asked Beni to join her when she performed the song on on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
At the end of their duet on Late Night with Seth Meyers, watch the mom-of-two Carlile beam with pride. At the end of the performance, she bows to Beni with respect and admiration.
