Evie Clair – Arms (Christina Perri)
Evie performed this song in 2017 at age 13 for her first audition on America’s Got Talent. She got a standing ovation from all 4 judges and tears from both of her parents who were watching from back stage. She wanted to sing for her dad who was dying of cancer. He passed away before he could see her make it to the finals. He was her biggest fan and she sings again for him now at age 16 knowing he’s been watching over her for the past 3 difficult years without him. Evie struggles to perform this song because of the pain it brings back but she felt driven to sing it again now for all those who are suffering like her dad did.
