Maher, who is now 18, recently posted a series of photos from the recording studio on Instagram. In one shot, she sits with her guitar. In another, she stands at a microphone wearing headphones. The singer captioned one of the posts, “much to come.”

In her audition for AGT, Maher’s father shared that she started singing when she was only a year old. She was 4 years old at the time, charming the judges with a performance of “Somewhere Out There.” She ended up making it all the way to the Top 10. Maher is the youngest contestant to make it that far in the history of the show.

During her time on the show, Maher sang songs such as “When You Wish Upon a Star,” “What a Wonderful World,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “I’ll Be There.” She later sang at the National Cristmas Tree Lighting before signing a recording deal in 2009. Her debut album was called You Were Meant To Be.



What Has Maher Been Up to Since the Show?

Not long after she appeared on AGT, Maher got into acting with a voice role in Santa Buddies. She also appeared in several related films, including The Search for Santa Paws, Treasure Buddies, and Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups.

Maher is also a youth ambassador for the nonprofit organization Compassion International. She has toured the world performing and doing humanitarian work. Maher also has a YouTube channel where she has posted videos, including cover songs and originals such as “World Without You.”

The singer recently finished up her first year as a college student at Duke University. You can keep up with Maher’s career and life on her Instagram account.
