Darci Lynne is the winner of Season 12 of America’s Got Talent. Surprisingly, it came down to her and Angelica Hale. Previously, Light Balance, Mandy Harvey and Sara and Hero were eliminated in that order. This left two of the younger contestants to be the two remaining for the end.
Lynne was inspired by a ventriloquist at a pageant and decided to give it a try. She has since won multiple state and national talent contests for ventriloquism and has appeared on TV around the world. Due to her success as a ventriloquist, she gave up being a gymnast to pursue her love for performing.
Hale is a young singer from Atlanta. At just two years old, Hale started singing along to songs on the radio, and began taking professional vocal lessons at the age of five. When she was four years old, Hale developed a severe bacterial pneumonia that nearly took her life, causing her to go septic and have multiple organ failures, including kidney failure and permanent scarring in her right lung.
