‘AGT’s Most Talented Kids Of The Decade:

This 11-year-old violinist touched America’s hearts with his story of surviving cancer and being bullied at school. His violin performances of popular songs wowed the judges and audience alike, and carried him to the Top 10 of Season 14. He’ll return for the second season of Champions in 2020.
