SALT LAKE CITY — An 11-year-old girl who wowed Utah Jazz fans last October is taking her talents to “America’s Got Talent.”
According to the East Idaho News, Paige Anne and her mother, Launie Anne, will drive to Arizona this week to audition for the reality show.
“We submitted an online audition and then they responded that they had the tape and gave us an audition time,” Launie Anne told eastidahonews.com. “We’re excited to see what happens.”
The family documented the trip on Facebook with live video updates that showed Paige singing at gas stations to help her prepare for the audition.
One of the most recent updates on her page showed her singing from an Arizona gas station a day ago.
The Phoenix audition is the last chance for prospective performers to audition for the reality show.
Paige’s singing talents went viral in October after she sang the national anthem before the Jazz defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder, KSL previously reported.4 comments on this story
Paige, who hails from Idaho Falls and has sung for three years, auditioned to sing for the Jazz game but nearly pulled out because she was feeling sick.
She also garnered attention while signing at the Hunting Expo at the Salt Palace. She used that money to travel to Phoenix for the audition, according to the East Idaho News.
“I think she’s so much braver than anybody that I know,” her mother said. “She can get up in front of anybody and sing in front of thousands and thousands of people and not bat an eye. It’s fun to see her wings grow. It’s fun to see her fly.”
