'America's Got Talent' winner Darci Lynne Farmer adds 2nd show at Cobb

Posted Wednesday, December 6, 2017 by RODNEY HO/ on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Darci Lynne Farmer, the 13-year-old ventriloquist singer who won "America's Got Talent" this summer, is adding a second show at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre January 13.

Her first show at 8 p.m. is already largely sold out. Her new second show at 3 p.m. goes on sale Friday, December 8 at 10 a.m. with prices starting at $25. (You can check tickets here.)

On the popular NBC talent show, Darci beat out runner-up singer Angelica Hale, a 10-year-old vocal phenom from Johns Creek.

Amazingly, Darci has been doing this for less than three years. She said ventriloquism helped her break out of her shell.

"America's Got Talent" had given the crown to a previous adult ventriloquist singer and comic Terry Fator a decade ago during season two. He received a $100 million Las Vegas contract after the victory and is still performing regularly there. He is arguably the most successful performer in the show's history.

Fator also showed up and dueted with Farmer during the finale.
