On Simon Cowell’s suggestion, Maddie auditioned. Maddie auditioned on the spot with no backing music and tears streaming down her face. She sang “Amazing Grace” without any backing music and performed with more acrobatics that a Cirque du Soleil show.

The judges made the right decision.

Those emotions, we later discovered, can’t simply be attributed to an AGT dream come true. Maddie’s dad Chris has been fighting cancer for nine years. It has now reached stage-four. She learned to sing in the hospital and honed their vocal skills.

When asked how she would spend $1 million, she replied, “I would help [him] with that.”

Howie Mandel made a profound change in her life by smashing the Golden Buzzer. Maddie enters the live rounds with more tears, hugs and golden confetti.
