11-Year-Old Opera Singer Receives The Golden Buzzer On America’s Got Talent


When a nervous 11-year-old took the stage during an audition for America’s Got Talent, nobody was prepared for the beautiful sounds that followed. Arielle Baril told the judges that she’s been singing for as long as she can remember; her brother being one of her primary teachers growing up. With her mother proudly watching behind the stage, Baril delivered a captivating opera performance that shocked everyone in the room.

Nothing beats watching the judges’ faces once they realized that the pristine sounds they were hearing were coming from the 11-year-old on stage. Baril’s performance was, in fact, so moving that celebrity judge Heidi Klum felt compelled to hit the golden buzzer, which sends Baril straight to the semi-finals. Each judge is only allowed to use the golden buzzer once during the audition phase, but I think it’s safe to say that Klum used hers well.
