All the normal contenders on America’s Got Talent showed up in this lastest episode, but the vocal styling of the kids really stood out.
One in particular was Calysta Bevier.
The back story on a lot of performers is part of the appeal of how you get to know the performer. When you can feel for them they become more than just a number on stage singing, dancing, or grossing us out. None stands out more so far this season of America’s Got Talent than 16 year old Calysta Bevier from Grand Rapids, Ohio. Right away her personality shines through when complimented on her look, she replied “My hair wasn’t really like my choice, I’m a survivor of stage 3 ovarian cancer”.
Last summer Calysta’s mom noticed a lump on her stomach. She was taken into the Dr, and the Dr. gave them news no parent wants to hear. The Dr. said, your child has cancer. This began a year of chemotherapy. On August 28th Calysta got the news that she was one of the lucky one’s and she was now in remission.
“I came here to day to show people that no matter what you’ve gone through, to keep chasing your dreams” she said before singing her heart out to Fight Song.
It’s clear to see why all the judges and audience loved her, and would have certainly given her 4 yeses. Simon being Simon wasn’t about to stand for that. With a smile upon his face he said, “I’m sorry, I have to do this” and presses the coveted golden buzzer. The entire theater erupts into a standing ovation as golden ribbons falls from all around.
