There’s a saying in life that “everything happens for a reason.” There are situations and events that happen to us, good and bad, that shape the people that we are today. Sometimes, they even help us discover hidden talents.

A little 9-year-old girl named Angelica Hales is brave enough to show off her talent by auditioning for America’s Got Talent. Her parents couldn’t be more supportive of her; after all — she’s overcome so much already.

“When Angelica was four years old, she started coughing and having fevers. We brought her into the emergency room, and that’s when we found out she had double pneumonia,” her dad explained to NBC World of Dance.

If that wasn’t horrible enough, Angelica’s kidney had stopped working — they weren’t sure if their little girl was going to make it. The brave girl’s parents were not going to give up — her mom was going to do anything she could to save her life.

Angelica’s mom donated one of her kidneys to her little girl. The transplant ended up saving their daughter’s life. And we’re so grateful that it did.

Angelica is here with us today to share her amazing talent with us. We are so impressed by her perseverance.
