AGT Finale To Continue Despite Tragic Death

- Page 1

We first fell in love with 13-year-old Evie Clair when she performed on America's Got Talent this past spring.

It wasn't only her beautiful voice that captured America's heart, but the story of her family's struggle struck a cord with viewers across the country.

A year before the show aired, her father was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and was given a 5% chance to live. He continued to work and support his family in spite of his terminal diagnosis.

His daughter sang a moving rendition of Arms by Christina Perri, which brought the audience and judges to their feet.

She continued through Judge Cuts where she again won the hearts of Simon, Mel, Heidi and Howie.

See her beautiful performance of I Try by Macy Gray:

She went on to the Live Show, where she delivered a beautiful performance in spite of her father not being able to travel to watch it live.

Her father may have not been able to travel, but he was still watching from his hospital bed.

"Good luck baby," he said. "I'm sorry I missed it live."

And we're sure he wouldn't have missed this moment:

She went onto the Semi-Finals where she was able to connect with the audience, yet again.

Evie made it through to the Finals, with the Dunkin' Save which required viewers to vote on Wednesday night.

But in spite of her success on the AGT stage, before she was able to give her performance in the Finals, she was faced with the unthinkable off screen.
