Dad of LDS Teen Finalist on "America's Got Talent" Dies Days After Emotional Performance


Our prayers go out to the Abplanalp family at this time.

An LDS teen from Arizona has made it to the finals on NBC’s America’s Got Talent by singing her heart out every week for her dad, who died of stage 4 cancer Thursday afternoon.

Thirteen-year-old Evie Abplanalp, who goes by Evie Clair, has been singing and playing the piano since she was 2 years old. Her unique voice has captured the heart of America and America’s Got Talent judges this summer, but her biggest fan was her dad, Amos Abplanalp.
