Evie Clair delivered a tearful performance in front of the America’s Got Talent judges after she told them about her emotional story before auditioning for the show. The 13-year-old singer opened up about how her dad was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer and given a five percent chance to live.
the Florence, Arizona native belted out Christina Perri’s 2011 song “Arms” — the ballad she has been singing to her cancer-stricken father in times of need.
“About a year ago, my dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer,” Evie tearfully told Mel B, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel. “They gave him a five percent chance to live, and he continued working and supporting our family. So tonight I’m here to sing for him.”
As the teenager wiped away her tears, she added, “When my dad is having rough days, I sing him this song to make him feel better and give him comfort and strength to continue fighting.”
