Angelica Hale is a 10 year old singer from Atlanta, GA who competed in America's Got Talent last season, getting Chris Hardwick's Golden Buzzer, and finished as the youngest runner-up in the show's history. She has also appeared on Little Big Shots, the Today show, Pickler & Ben, and Harry. She currently performs all over the World and was a featured performer in the 91st Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and the 50th annual Dr. Martin Luther King commemoration. Her ultimate dream is to be a singer / songwriter performing her own songs all over the World while appearing on TV and movies.

Angelica almost didn't make it to Kindergarten. When she was only 4 years old, she became very ill with double pneumonia, septic shock, multiple organ failure, and was hospitalized for over 80 days. After her 6th birthday, she received the greatest gift - a life-saving kidney transplant from her mother.

Angelica's mission is to use her voice and her music to help raise money for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, the hospital that saved her life. She is partnered with the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals organization to help raise funds for children's hospitals all over the United States and Canada. She is also the first kid ambassador of the National Kidney Foundation and is also partnered with the Sepsis Alliance to help raise awareness of both kidney disease and sepsis. She has been fortunate to perform at a number of events with David Foster, benefiting the David Foster Foundation.
