What to Know About ‘America’s Got Talent’ Opera Prodigy Victory Brinker
At just 9 years old, Victory Brinker is already conquering the world of opera music. The tiny star auditioned for America’s Got Talent this season. Many believe she is the recipient of the show’s first-ever team Golden Buzzer. Victory’s life is about to change forever after stepping onto the biggest stage in the world.
Victory Brinker Already Has An Impressive Resume Ahead of ‘America’s Got Talent’ Audition
Victory has been singing since she was two years old and began to pursue classical music when she was 6. She watched YouTube videos early on that influenced her to want to pursue a career as an opera singer. The ability to hit super high notes is what really drew her in. Her love for music has taken her all over the United States to perform for huge audiences. This on-stage experience will come in handy for her performance on America’s Got Talent.
In 2018, Victory won first place in her very first talent show singing “Ave Maria.” Victory went from performing on local talent show stages to performing at Carnegie Hall. You might even remember her from her viral “too tired” Vine when she was just two years old. Her star quality was already apparent from a young age.
Victory opened for Gianni Russo at The Butler Italian Festival. It’s not every day that an America’s Got Talent contestant has rubbed elbows with Carlo Rizzi from The Godfather. Victory performed five songs in Italian at the show. She also landed her first movie role as a featured extra in The Boy Hero in 2018 along with the lead role in the Christian film Helping Izzy. She has sung the National Anthem at several sports games and performed at the Apollo.
With the love and support of her parents and 10 siblings, Victory went to perform on Little Big Shots in front of Melissa McCarthy last year. Victory can perform in seven languages. This year she sang “Just Sing” for the DreamWorks Trolls World Tour video in German. She also performed a beautiful cover of “Fall On Me” by Andrea Bocelli on YouTube. This song perfectly showcases her angelic voice.
Is Victory Headed for Victory?
This year on America’s Got Talent, the judges are doing something they have never done in the show’s history. All four judges and Terry Crews will be hitting the Golden Buzzer together. Several fans on Instagram believe that Victory is the recipient of this special Golden Buzzer. All of the judges already gave out their individual Golden Buzzers and it takes someone very special to change the course of the show.
In the first promo for Season 16, singer Matt Mauser speaks about losing his wife in the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna. Initially, we thought Matt was a shoo-in for this Golden Buzzer due to his determination to show his children how to keep their heads up. It appears that Sofia Vergara is wearing a red dress during Matt’s audition. In the scene where all of the judges and Crews hit the Golden Buzzer, Vergara is wearing a blue dress.
Looking at the lineup for Tuesday’s jam-packed episode, Victory and Matt are certainly the two standout contestants. Based on the history of the competition, child opera singers usually do rather well. Jackie Evancho was able to build her career off of America’s Got Talent and eventually land a spot on The Masked Singer. Victory has the chance to achieve this same level of fame.
Do you think Victory will get the five-way Golden Buzzer during Tuesday’s episode of America’s Got Talent? The only way to find out is to tune in to NBC at 8 p.m. ET.
