All of Christ’s children are special gifts.
But, sometimes, the whole world becomes fascinated by a few young talents.
This has been the case of Darci Lynne.
Just a few months ago, Darci was a young girl living a pretty normal life in Oklahoma. Then, everything changed when she stepped on stage to audition for America’s Got Talent.
At first, the crowd didn’t know what to make of this little girl with a puppet in her hand – Simon Cowell looked particularly underwhelmed.
That is until Darci and her puppet, Petunia, stole the show with their charming, skillful performance. They even earned the coveted golden buzzer from AGT judge Mel B.
From there, Darci became a fan favorite and ended up winning it all.
What happens next for her, though?
Let’s take a look.
Performing at Sold Out Shows
The past few months have filled young Darci’s calendar with shows all over the country.
One of her first stops was Las Vegas, where she and fellow contestants from this season did a show together. The lineup included Angelica Hale and Light Balance, who shared the stage with Darci at Planet Hollywood.
Darci took this as a chance to mix up her performance style. In addition to jokes and song covers, she added yodeling and opera singing to her act.
The bunch performed for 4 days in early November, every time to a sold-out show.
Next on the agenda is a hometown headlining mini-series, titled the “Darci Lynne Homecoming Show.”
Hosted by iHeartMEDIA, this was originally intended to be two performances. After tickets sold out so fast, though, a third show was added.
Darci will be gracing this small-town stage on December 17, 2017.
Doing Holiday Specials
There are a few other performances in the mix, with more of a focus on the spirit of Christmas.
Darci just did an adorable twist on “Oh, Christmas Tree” with Pentatonix for their holiday special.
Since her puppet, Petunia, is a bunny, the song was “Oh Easter Egg.” The a capella talents sang backup while Petunia took it away.
They also invited Jennifer Hudson to sing “How Great Thou Art”. Don’t forget to listen to Home Free’s rendition.
Also on the horizon for Darci is a possible performance with Terry Fator, again.
Terry and Darci performed together during the AGT finals. Since then, he has invited Darci to be a guest on his special, “A Very Terry Christmas”, running from November 27 to Christmas Day this year.
Signing with a Well-Known Agency
Although presents aren’t the meaning of Christmas, it seems like a special gift has come early for Darci.
At just 13 years old, she has signed with United Talent Agency.
The group plans to set up a national tour for Darci.
Talks of a television series and record deal are in the works as well.
Darci Lynne: What’s Not to Love?
As much as Darci Lynne’s talent is undeniable, so is her genuine spirit.
Fans got a glimpse of this when she burst into tears being crowned the AGT winner. It’s clear in the way she does interviews and the jokes she does on stage, too.
From her hometown to the corners of the nation, she’s got our attention.
America is truly excited to watch this little girl grow up, and attend her shows along the way.
