Who is Angelica Hale of America’s Got Talent?
Angelica Hale was born on July 31, 2007, in Atlanta, Georgia, to her parents Eva and James Hale and she has a younger sister named Abigail. From the early age of two, Hale started singing and knew she wanted to take it further and become a superstar just like Whitney Houston whom she has always looked up to. She gained her fame when she went for season twelve of the American Got Talent competition.
At the age of four, Angelica suffered from a life-threatening health condition known as Sepsis. This disease led to several organ failures, including her kidney. That was a very challenging time in her life and that of her family as she needed to undergo a kidney transplant. Her mother who matched her samples donated a kidney to her daughter which saved her life, however, the sickness kept her in the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for 80 days.
In 2017, at the age of nine, she decided to showcase her talent to the world when she participated in the 12th season of the popular reality show, Americans Got Talent.
