A YOUNG STAR
From being the youngest contestant to win the “America’s Got Talent” contest to touring the country, 16-year-old Darci Lynne brought her undeniable talent to the Elkhart County 4-H Fair on Wednesday.
After her debut on AGT, Lynne’s career quickly took off. Lynne started her first tour in 2018. Now, years later, she is developing her talent, exploring new ends to her career and enjoying it every minute.
âI’ve been a singer for as long as I can remember,â Lynne said. “I did little competitions when I was 10 years old.”
Lynne was also introduced to ventriloquism in her youth. After trying, she realized that ventriloquism was something she wanted to do more of. With a lot of hard work and creativity, Lynne managed to combine her musical debut with the art of ventral sites. His shows are both playful and entertaining with the collision of these two art forms.
After her initial tour ended, Lynn began her 2020 national tour titled âFresh Out of the Box,â bringing what she loves to do most to people across the country.
âI like being able to make people laugh and smile,â she said. “I want to make their day and inspire them to pursue their dreams.”
Lynne has performed on major stages, has been featured on numerous television and news media. She has appeared on NBC’s Christmas special, NBC’s Today Show, “Little Big Shots” and has even performed on the Grand Ole Opry. Despite all of these accomplishments during her career, Lynne remains humble and true to her roots.
âI’m really happy to have stayed true to my roots,â she said. âWe didn’t decide to move to LA. We stayed in my hometown, stayed anchored.
While her fans have a lot to say about how they enjoyed her show on Wednesday, Lynne herself is struggling to pick the best part of her My Lips Are Sealed tour.
âAll puppets are so different,â Lynne said. “I’m just excited for the new material, the new comedy, etc.”
While Lynne’s gift is currently jam-packed as she continues her My Lips Are Sealed tour, her future looks bright as well. In the future, she hopes to release her own album of original music, which she has just started working on.
âWhat I always like to tell people is that it’s never impossible to make your dreams come true, work hard even if you don’t get them,â Lynne concluded. âDon’t let anyone tell you you can’t get it. Dark. Don’t let anything hold you back.
