Emily, Rosalyn’s mother, shared an exclusive statement on her daughter’s desire being fulfilled to sing in front of a panel of judges.
All of the judges and presenter of America’s Got Talent were instrumental in ensuring that a little girl who had only just emerged victorious over cancer had the opportunity of a lifetime.
Rosalyn, from Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, was granted the opportunity to fulfill her wish of trying out for America’s Got Talent thanks to Make-A-Wish Philadelphia and the Susquehanna Valley chapter.
Rosalyn was only 3 years old when she was given the diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. For the next few years, she had daily hospital visits for spinal taps, IV chemotherapy, and daily chemo medicine to take at home, however, she had been in remission since the end of her last treatment in March, and this only just occurred.
Rosalyn’s dream was to perform on America’s Got Talent singing the Avril Lavigne song that motivated her while she was undergoing treatment for her illness.
Rosalyn had a meet and greet with the judges before to the recording of the live program. Howie Mandel, one of the judges, presented her with a signed American Idol t-shirt. She also received Barbie dolls from Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Simon Cowell.
“She was taken aback to receive so many presents, but she couldn’t wait to get started playing with them!”
Rosalyn responded by pointing to Vergara in response to Mandel’s question about which judge in the tape was her favorite, and Vergara proceeded to embrace her. “You have so amazing taste, little kid,” Vergara joked.
After she performed, Mandel said that Rosalyn was “the finest performance of the night,” and Vergara echoed his sentiments, saying that Rosalyn was “going to be a star.”
However, the excellent comments was not the only thing that Rosalyn got; the little girl also earned the highly sought Golden Buzzer from Simon Cowell himself.
After that, Cowell gave Rosalyn the box of gold confetti to take with her, and he had her pledge with her pinky that she would come back to America’s Got Talent.
He went so far as to ask her to assist him in judging when she was sitting on the panel for the live show’s auditions. Rosalyn took a picture with all four judges, including Crews, before she departed.
