Arizona’s own Evie Clair performs at America’s Got Talent Finals tonight on NBC

Teenager Evie Clair from Florence, Arizona has had quite the journey. Initially auditioning to be on reality competition show, America’s Got Talent, while also dealing with the fact that her father had been diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer a year before.

13 year old Evie Clair performed her heart out and made it to the show, past the judge cuts, through the semi-finals, and right into the finals. It was difficult, but with the support of her family, she pulled through and is enthusiastic about singing in the finals tonight, Tuesday September 19, on NBC!

Judge Simon Cowell gave her the option to return for the finals or return next season after he had discovered that her Dad had been removed from life support and passed on prior to her anticipated performance in Los Angeles for the finals.

We wish her all the best and know she has the entire state of Arizona behind her!
