Singer, Angelica Hale stopped into Seacrest Studios recently to visit old friends and make new ones! The 12-year-old and youngest Runner-Up in the history of “America's Got Talent”, returned to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to thank the doctors and nurses who saved her life years ago.
Diagnosed with a life threatening illness at age 4 and subsequent kidney transplant, the talented singer encouraged other young fans to “keep on dreaming and keep on believing in yourself”…just as she did when she was a fellow patient! When Angelica explained that it took her two tries to make it on NBC’s popular reality TV competition show she added, “Oh! And never give up!” The highlight of the visit was hearing her perform the song that moved her past the auditions round, “Rise Up” by Andra Day. What an inspiration! Some patients were even moved to tears by her performance, her kindness and encouragement. You’ll be hearing more from Angelica Hale... her future looks very bright!
