Angelina Green impressed everyone with her powerful voice on America's Got Talent Tuesday night. The 13-year-old sang "I'll Stand By You" by The Pretenders, which was a fitting song choice considering what she and her mom had been through.
Angelina said that her dad had left one day and never returned, adding, "We were left with literally nothing." She also talked about overhearing her mom on the phone with homeless shelters after they had received multiple eviction notices. Angelina used singing as a way to escape from all of her troubles. "I would sing and all my sadness and troubles, they would all go away," she said.
The 13-year-old put on an amazing performance that got a standing ovation. All of the judges loved her, and Simon Cowell told her, "I mean, you've made my goose bumps have goose bumps." Although, Heidi Klum loved her the most, saying, "And I loved it so much that I'm gonna hit the Gold Buzzer!" Gold confetti then fell down around Angelina, as tears of joy fell from her eyes. And now it's on to the live shows for the young teenager.
