14-year-old Baltimorean Jayna Brown has a big smile and an even bigger voice.
She proved that on yesterday’s episode of America’s Got Talent, when she sang the inspirational ballad “Rise Up.” Her performance won her a standing ovation, praise from the judges (including even mean old Simon Cowell), a shower of confetti, and swift passage to the competition’s next round.
Brown told the judges that she and her mom are currently homeless and staying with friends and family.
She’ll next compete on Tuesday at 8PM, during the competition’s live show.
