Angelica Hale Continues To Amaze America

If the voting is held now, there is a great chance that Angelica Hale will win "America’s Got Talent".

This is according to the results of a poll taken after the singer earned a standing ovation on "AGT" quarterfinal. This talented tyke was put straight through to the live show when she won over guest judge Chris Hardwick. He hit his Golden Buzzer after watching her perform "Girl on Fire" by Alicia Keys.

Hale, who was the fifth act on the quarterfinal, finished first with many viewers with her flawless rendition of "Clarity" by Zedd. She had all four judges singing her praises, with both Mel B and Heidi Klum gushing over her extraordinary range.

Viewers of the show first met Hale on the 6 June audition episode when we were introduced to her via a videotape that recounted her comeback from a health crisis. Five years ago, she was diagnosed with kidney disease at the age of four and her mother donated one of hers. Fully recovered, she wowed the crowd at her "AGT" audition with her rendition of Andra Day's Grammy-nominated "Rise Up."

Before she was thrust into the "AGT" spotlight, the Filipino-American had her hands full performing at various events in the US, including raising awareness and funds for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

The Miss America 2017 and the US Open in 2015 were just some of the notable events the 9-year old was invited to perform in. She also continues to receive bookings for corporate events.

Singing is her passion, according to her father James, and she plans to use her talent "to help and inspire others, especially children in need."

"It's her dream to become a singer. Her being here today is a miracle," her father James said.
