Talented Young Girl is a Cancer Survivor and Earns Golden Buzzer from Simon Cowell
before the premiere of American Idol way back in 2002, viewers over in England knew exactly how temperamental the judge could be when it came to hearing auditions on their original version of the show.
Simon Cowell is a man known throughout the entertainment industry as not only someone with an impeccable ear for talent, but one who is notoriously difficult to impress.
Of course, it takes someone really special to steal his heart (like the contestant who made him tear up with his tribute to a late friend), and the young lady in the clip below did just that when she stepped up onto the America’s Got Talent stage.
After Mandel compliments the 16-year-old’s “Audrey Hepburn” style, Calysta Bevier reveals the hair wasn’t exactly her choice. A year ago, the sweet girl was diagnosed with Stage 3 ovarian cancer. Fortunately, she was able to battle the illness and is now thriving thanks to her incredible bravery.
Calysta’s song choice, “Fight Song,” further exemplifies just how much strength she has for someone who is still so young. She also backs that up with beautiful vocals and remarkable control that most performers spend years attempting to hone. The amazing rendition proves just how much more is in store for the inspiring survivor.
