A week after Atlanta's Michael Geier (Puddles Pity Party) skated through the opening round of "America's Got Talent," Johns Creek nine-year-old Angelica Hale surprised the audience on night two with a super mature voice for her age.

Angelica covered Andra Day's "Rise Up."

Her back story: when she was four years old, she lost her kidney function after double pneumonia. Fortunately, her mom provided her daughter a kidney and she has thrived.

The judges loved her and gave her a standing ovation. "You're tiny," said Simon Cowell. "Your voice is huge. I have a feeling we're looking at a future star."
