Nine-year-old Angelica Hale brought audiences to their feet Tuesday night during her most recent performance on “America’s Got Talent,” singing a powerful cover of Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire.”
Hale told judges she was a bit more nervous than the last time she appeared on the competition show in June, when she declared she wanted to be “the next Whitney Houston” and a “superstar.” And with her powerhouse vocal talents, she may well be on her way.
Judge Chris Hardwick rewarded the amazing performer with a coveted golden buzzer, yelling, “You are the chosen one!”
The Georgia native had to undergo a kidney transplant at the age of 4 after being put on life support. Her mother donated one of her kidneys to her daughter.
Take a look at the flawless performance in the video above.
