Darci Lynne Farmer lives in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She's only 12 years old, and she was very shy growing up. She says she was "not good at eye contact and things like that." After seeing a ventriloquist act at a local church, she asked to learn it. When she turned 10, her parents bought her a puppet, and it helped cure her shyness. "Ventriloquism kind of helped me find my voice," she says. "It helped me come out of my shell."


Recently, the TV show "America's Got Talent" held auditions in Oklahoma City, and Darci decided to try out.  Even if she didn't win anything, she'd learn a lot from the experience. The video linked below is her audition, and so far, it has been seen several million times on social media. If you watch to the very end, be prepared to wipe away a tear. Spoiler Alert: she received the Golden Buzzer, which means she advances automatically to the finals on live TV. Prepare to be astonished.  http://www.flixxy.com/12-year-old-singing-ventriloquist-darci-lynne-gets-golden-buzzer-americas-got-talent-2017.htm
