Watch 9-Year-Old Belt Out a Tina Turner Classic on ‘America’s Got Talent’

Tuesday’s episode (July 2) of America’s Got Talent introduced viewers to an incredible young talent — 9-year-old Pranysqa Mishra from Tampa, Fla.

Pranysqa’s powerful rendition of Tina Turner’sRiver Deep, Mountain High” left the judges and audience wildly impressed, ultimately earning her the coveted Golden Buzzer from judge Heidi Klum.

Before her Season 19 audition, Pranysqa shared her lifelong passion for singing, which dates back as far as she can remember.

“I always just love singing. It makes me feel happy. Even when I was four years old, I would pretend that I have a microphone, and I would sing like I’m singing to the whole world,” she enthused.

Pranysqa credited her grandmother as her main inspiration and the driving force behind her burgeoning career, along with her musical idols Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Whitney Houston.

Despite admitting to some nerves, particularly about performing in front of the notoriously tough Simon Cowell, Pranysqa’s confidence shone through the moment she began singing with a commanding voice that defied her youth.

The judges were visibly stunned, exchanging looks of disbelief as her powerful vocals filled the auditorium.

“Oh my gosh, I did not expect that. We expect a lot of things, but I did not expect that,” Heidi Klum exclaimed.

Without hesitation, Klum hit the Golden Buzzer, sending Pranysqa straight to the live shows. “I want you to call your grandmother and say that Heidi Klum pushed the Golden Buzzer for you,” she told the young singer.

When the golden confetti rained down on Pranysqa, she began crying tears of happiness, clearly in shock that she had earned the golden honor. “My dream is coming true. I can’t believe it,” she said, reflecting on her grandmother’s prediction that she would one day perform on a big stage.

Pranysqa’s family joined her on stage for an emotional celebration, with tears of joy and hugs all around. Klum then helped Pranysqa call her grandmother to share the incredible news.

“You are absolutely incredible,” Heidi Klum told the pint-sized powerhouse after her performance.
