BIO: Angelica Hale became a household name during America’s Got Talent season 12. At nine years old, she auditioned for AGT singing “Rise Up” by Andra Day. She continued the season as a fan favorite and finished as runner up to Darci Lynne Farmer.

Hale began singing along to music on the radio at only two years old. As a child, she developed aggressive strep bacteria in her lungs that quickly turned into double pneumonia. During her hospital stay her body went septic, experiencing multiple organ failures. Hale was placed on an ECMO machine for 12 days. Later, all organs except for her kidneys recovered. When Hale was six years old, her mother donated a kidney to her.

She auditioned for AGT in 2017 and returned to the series in 2019 for AGT: The Champions. Since the talent show, Hale has performed: in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, at Celebrity Fight Night with David Foster, at multiple sporting events and more. In 2022, she made her acting debut in the film American Reject.
