Kadie Lynn, the 12-year-old girl who lends her singing talent to churches, is now heading towards the semifinals of NBC's "America's Got Talent."
Lynn, whose specialty is country songs, made it to the semifinals on Wednesday night after she bested ThroWings for the seventh and final spot, according to the Christian Examiner.
Simon Cowell, arguably the most critical judge of the show, gave her a chance to enter the semifinals by voting for her to force a 2-2 tie in the judges' scorecards. The TV audience then broke the tie and helped Lynn move forward by voting for her.
Should she win the competition, Lynn will take home $1 million in cash prize plus a Las Vegas show.
Lynn started singing at the age of three, when she sang four verses of "Amazing Grace" from memory before the Tolosa Baptist Church congregation in Kemp, Texas.
Up to now, Lynn still sings for her church, but she has expanded her audience base and now performs at concerts and music festivals.
When she first entered the competition in July, Lynn wowed country legend Reba McEntire, who served as a guest judge. "You have a stage presence that I didn't find until I was in my 20s," McEntire told her.
Lynn has a real chance to make it big as a country singer given her stint in "America's Got Talent," but she still honours God in everything she does.
"The greatest thank you goes to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who, by the power of God, has showered her with such an abundance of blessings and the heavenly gift of music," her bio from NBC reads.
Aside from God, Lynn is grateful for the loving upbringing her adopted parents Darrel and Deborah Robertson gave her. "My mom and my dad mean everything to me. They just took me in. We don't even worry that I'm adopted. We don't even think about it. It doesn't even come to mind," she says.
