Angelica Hale may be young, but when she sings, she sounds like a seasoned vocalist. She started her run on “America’s Got Talent” at just 9 years old, but recently celebrated her 10th birthday on July 31.
The adorable tween has been turning heads on this season of NBC’s talent show with her incredible vocal range and capacity for reaching unbelievable high notes.
She turned heads again with her latest performance of “Clarity” by Zedd, as part of the competition show’s first live round on Aug. 14.
In this You Tube clip, which has already garnered more than 2 million views, the pint-sized darling can be heard pouring her whole heart and soul out into the emotional song while standing on a stage set with blue, shimmery lights. She gradually builds up her performance, utilizing her impressive vocal range, and reaches a jaw-dropping high note that stuns the studio audience and the judges, including former Spice Girl Mel B.
“The way you interpreted every single lyric meant something so powerful,” Mel praised, according to “Entertainment Tonight.” “Thank you so much,” she added. “I’m not going to cry.”
Her powerhouse voice aside, Angelica is quite the miracle child. At age four she overcame double pneumonia and kidney failure. She received a kidney donation from her mom, and got another chance at life.
During the episode, Angelica went up against a dozen other contestants in hopes of winning the grand prize – a total of $1 million and a headlining show in Las Vegas. Whether or not she ultimately wins the show, she has already won our hearts!
