Evie Clair Gives Emotional Cover Of ‘I Try’ On America’s Got Talent For Father Battling Cancer

By Shawn Rice

Evie Clair delivered an emotional cover of Macy Gray’s hit “I Try” on America’s Got Talent for her father battling cancer. As she explained to the judges during her June debut, Clair’s dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer last year and given a 5 percent chance to live, and “Arms” is the song she sings to him when he’s having a rough day.

“It’s just so amazing. I can always just remember this moment with him, and I’m so grateful for that,” she said. Upon taking the stage, the tears returned as she told the judges, “A lot of things are happening right now and we don’t really know what’s gonna happen next.” Simon Cowell asked if she wanted to take some time, but the teen wanted to sing.

“You are amazing. You’re beautiful,” said guest judge DJ Khaled. “You touch everyone’s soul and spirit. Your family is going to be very proud of you.” Heidi Klum noted the performance wasn’t “perfect,” but said, “I still remember you and your voice at the end of the day because it is special.” Simon Cowell also pointed out some vocal flaws, though he said he understood why she was emotional throughout the performance.
