WATCH: 16-Year-Old Cancer Survivor Calysta Bevier Earns Simon Cowell's Golden Buzzer with Her Powerful AGT Performance
Bevier, who performed "Fight Song," is a survivor of stage 3 ovarian cancer
Simon Cowell has found his golden buzzer-worthy act.
While introducing herself, the Ohio native explained her pixie hairdo was the result of surviving stage 3 ovarian cancer. “No matter what you’ve gone through, keep chasing your dreams,” Bevier told the crowd before belting out Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song.”
“I’ve got this incredible feeling about you, I think everyone in this room felt it, you were nervous I could feel that. I predict great things are gonna happen for you. There’s something about you,” Cowell, 56, said as he reached over to press the golden buzzer.
Already in season 11, young musical acts have caught the eye of all the judges.
Mel B‘s golden buzzer went to 13-year-old singer Laura Bretan, Howie Mandel pressed the coveted button for 12-year-old ukulele player Grace VanderWaal and Heidi Klum selected 20-year-old pizza delivery man-turned-vocalist Sal Valentinetti for her golden choice.
