9-Year-Old's Alicia Keys Cover Blew Away The 'America's Got Talent' Judges

posted by Samantha Cohen -

Watch out Alicia Keys- you've got some competition! Nine-year-old Angelica Hale wowed the America's Got Talent judges with a jaw-dropping performance of Alicia Keys' Girl on Fire.

Hale even landed the golden buzzer from guest judge Chris Hardwick. The song has a special meaning for Hale because she knows what it's like to fight back when the going gets tough. At only four years old, a bacterial infection severely damaged her kidneys and left her fighting to survive on life support. 

The young girl performs throughout the country to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, where she stayed as she recovered from the infection. 

"I wanted to become like [popular singers], but instead of doing it for something else, I did it for raising money for the hospitals," Hale said in the video. "I won't forget my experience in my hospital because that is kind of like a centerpiece in my life." 

Watch her empowering performance below, this girl is really on fire!
