When 9-year-old Angelica told America's Got Talent judges that she wanted to be next Whitney Houston and a superstar, the judges were a bit skeptical.

The audience and judges let out a collective 'Aww' as the girl opens up about her dreams, as singing on Whitney-Houston level seems to be a far-off and lofty goal, especially for the 9-year-old.

Seconds after Angelica started singing, it was clear that she was a real deal! The entire auditorium along with judges was left stunned. The girl chose to sing Andra Day's 'Rise Up', and she knocked it out of the park completely!

Even famously skeptical Simon Cowell opened his eyes and broke into a smile as he tried to understand how someone so young and tiny could have such a powerful voice.

Turns out, Angelica's singing talent has a very sad backstory. When the young girl was just 4 years old, she developed a bacterial infection in her lungs. The disease grew into double pneumonia and caused the girl to go septic, ravaging her body and destroying her kidneys.

Angelica ended up on life-support and doctors didn't know if she'd survive. The girl needed a kidney transplant and nothing else could help.

Fortunately, after months of testing, doctors found out that Angelica's mom was the perfect match! In 2013, both mom and daughter underwent surgery, and the girl got a new lease on life.
