Florence teen Evie Clair melted hearts and won fans during her summer-long journey on the 12th season of "America's Got Talent." The 13-year-old singer dazzled audiences with her emotional renditions of Christina Perri's "Arms" and "Yours" by Ella Henderson, which she dedicated to her terminally ill father.
Shortly before the final round, Evie Clair's father died, making it uncertain if she would rejoin the competition. She decided to return for the finale and made it to the top 10. The season's grand prize was awarded to ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer.
