This Young Singer Dedicated A Song To Her Mom And Earned A Golden Buzzer On 'America's Got Talent'

"You’ve made my goosebumps have goosebumps."

On Tuesday night, Heidi Klum was the last judge on America's Got Talent who hadn't pushed the Golden Buzzer for an act. Previous talents who earned a spot in the live shows included 12-year-old singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer and deaf singer Mandy Harvey.

Angelina Green, a 13-year-old vocalist with a moving story, joined them on Tuesday's show after impressing Klum with her emotional cover of "I'll Stand By You" by The Pretenders. Before singing, she shared that music helped her through her parents' divorce.


"I'm dedicating this song to my mom because she's always been there for me, and if I were to win this show, it would change my family's life forever," the young singer said, according to Gossip Cop.

Angelina's strong voice defied her young age, and earned a standing ovation from the crowd and judges. The song's personal meaning to her seemed to only add to the impact of the performance.

"You've made my goosebumps have goosebumps," Simon Cowell said of Angelina's performance.

Klum, meanwhile, told the young singer, "I really, really love what you just did. To me, you feel like there is an old soul inside of that little 13-year-old body, and I really, really loved it. And I loved it so much that I'm going to hit the Golden Buzzer."

We can't wait to see what Angelina has in store for the rest of the season.
