13-Year-Old Evie Clair Delivers Emotional 'Wings' Performance on 'America's Got Talent' (Video)

13-Year-Old Evie Clair Delivers Emotional 'Wings' Performance on 'America's Got Talent' (Video)

Evie Clair sits at the piano and sings her heart out during a performance of the Birdy song “Wings” for the quarter-finals round of America’s Got Talent.

The 13-year-old singer opened up in her pre-performance package about her dad’s battle with colon cancer. He was diagnosed with the disease a year ago and given a five percent chance of living.

While Evie‘s dad has been continuing with work, he was sadly too sick to make it to Los Angeles for the latest performance.

Evie dedicated the performance to her parents, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary.

    Is it “America’s Got Talent” or “America’s Most Heart-Wrenching Story”? Background stories should be left out entirely if this competition is really about talent. While it is truly unfortunate regarding her father’s illness, Miss Clair has only a sweet but very average voice to her credit. However, she has traveled far up the ladder, apparently on the strength of her family’s plight, which has been repeatedly spotlighted. If the producers want to make the show a charity event, which is certainly their right, then just give her the prize and forget about the competition. As it is, her rise to the semi-finals is unfair to the other contestants, some of whom really are talented.

    I honestly think without her personal life she would still be this far, ummm do u hear her voice???? If not then turn your volume up. She’s amazing

    Amazing? Maybe on the level of a high school talent show. I’m glad you like her because she will probably win, but it won’t be because of her voice.
