‘America’s Got Talent’ auditions are about to be amazed by a 30-year-old singer Brooke Simpson from Hollister, North Carolina. A familiar face to the audience’s following talent shows is attempting Lizzo’s song ‘Cuz I Love You’.
The song dubbed a big band soul moment that flexes the vocalist’s powers to the limit is certainly not an easy song to perform, and flawless execution will undoubtedly impress the judges and the audience.
But Brooke Simpson is not here only to impress with her voice. She aspires to win the competition as the first Native American to inspire and represent the Native American tribes.
Coming from the Haliwa-Saponi tribe, she attributes her fantastic singing talent to a musical upbringing in the tribe and their annual Pow Wow celebrations. “Growing up, it was super special, and it is still very special,” said Brooke in pre-interview.
Her stunning vocal performance, accompanied by her husband and pianist Ray Simpson, engulfed the room in intense positive energy, overtaking just about everyone in the audience.
The judges praised her performance, and Simon Cowell reminisced about the beginning days of ‘The Idol’ comparing her to singers Kelly Clarkson and Fantasia Barrino.
Brooke passed the first of many auditions on her way towards the goal of becoming the first major indigenous pop star and a true inspiration for future generations of Native American artists.
