Entertainment| | By Margo Gothelf
Calysta Bevier’s second performance on America’s Got Talent proved that she is in this competition to win.
Bevier previously wowed the crowd with her inspirational rendition of Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song.” Judge Simon Cowell sent Bevier right to the live performances by pushing the Golden Buzzer. Bevier, a cancer survivor, shows that she has the voice and inspiration to win it all.
This week Bevier choose to sing “Brave” by Sara Bareilles, where she once again brought the audience to their feet for a standing ovation. Check out the performance below.
Bevier took her personal struggle of surviving stage-3 ovarian cancer and incorporated her message in the song that you must be brave.
“You’re more than a great artist, Calysta,” Cowell said. “You’re a very special person. And you really, truly are an inspiration.”
He also told her that it was the “perfect song choice.”
“There’s so much more beyond the singing. And this is the first flawless performance of this night tonight on this stage,” shared judge Howie Mandel.
