Former “America’s Got Talent” champion Darci Lynne Farmer will spend her last Saturday before the start of a new school year in Tulsa.
Farmer, a 13-year-old singer ventriloquist from Oklahoma City, is scheduled to perform on Saturday, August 11 at the Brady Theater. The show will be a combination of song and ventriloquism, with the help, of course, of Farmer dolls Petunia (a bunny), Oscar (a mouse), Edna (an elderly woman) and Katie (a cowgirl).
Katie did not make an appearance on Farmer’s all-star series on “America’s Got Talent” last year.
“She was actually my very first puppet, but I wanted to do something different,” Farmer said. “Katie actually did ‘Little Big Shots’ with Steve Harvey. It was my very first TV appearance.
Farmer, in a phone interview ahead of the Tulsa show, said classes would begin August 15 at his school.
“Like, why?” she said. “Summer is almost over. I’m going to cry.”
Do teachers always force children to write “how I spent my summer vacation” essays? If so, Farmer has a surplus of material, and not just because she has performed on stages across the country.
“I have to go to Hawaii with my family,” she said. “It was really, really fun. I had never been there before, and it was like the best vacation I have ever had, so it was really, really fun. I was also able to go to Disneyland with my best friend and it was also a lot of fun so this summer has been great so far.
