- Jazz singing act
- Seen on America’s Got Talent (season 11, finalist) and America’s Got Talent: the Champions.
Born on August 26, 1995, Sal Valentinetti is an Italian-American crooner best known for his remarkable vocals, big personality and for having a great heart.
Influenced by his grandmother, Sal grew up falling in love with the musical genius of the classic crooner sounds of Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, and Frank Sinatra.
As a teenager, Sal realized he not only loved listening to this type of music, but he could also sing it. Soon enough, he started performing Frank Sinatra tribute acts and became known as “Sal the Voice.”
When his grandmother died, her music was all Valentinetti had to remember her by. Every time he sings the lyrics to a song he used to listen to with his grandmother, it’s like being with her again.
It’s one of the things which make his performances so remarkably beautiful, as noticed by the judges on America’s Got Talent. After participating in the competition, Sal used his time in the spotlight to build a singing career and has been touring all over the nation, selling out shows.
Watch Sal perform on stage at America’s Got Talent: the Champions and you’ll understand precisely why his shows are selling out:
Christian is a young singer with an incredibly touching life story. The Long Island, New York teen, was blind for most of his life until he regained his sight with the help of gene therapy.
His story combined with his outstanding vocal talent make the ideal combination which will leave the crowd touched beyond words.
Christian’s immense talent has taken him on the 12th season of America’s Got Talent, where he impressed the audience and judges, exceeding everyone’s expectations.
His vocal chops have earned him a Golden Buzzer from judge Howie Mandel, putting his act among the few musical performances to achieve this honor.
However, why not see the moment for yourself? Check out this video to see the entire performance:
8. Laura Bretan
When Laura Bretan stepped onto America’s Got Talent stage, and everyone found out she was a singer, nothing would have prepared the audience for what they were about to witness.
As soon as she started singing, her opera voice took over the entire room and created a transportive experience. The reason for this strong impact was that Laura’s voice would rather pertain to a seasoned opera singer, rather than to a teenage girl who’s just getting the hang of opera singing.
The impression was so strong that judge Mel B immediately pressed the golden buzzer. So Laura continued to deliver only golden buzzer-worthy performances all through to her top 10 finish. Here’s her memorable O Mio Babbino Caro rendition:
Another top 10 act, Linkin’ Bridge is a band whose members are called Big Rome, Montre Davis, Shon China Lacy and Ekoe Alexanda.
All of them are Louisville natives and the one feature setting them apart is their camaraderie which seems to be reflected by the warm harmonies their voices create.
Plus, another factor they impress with is the unabridged joy with which they sing. If one looked at them during a performance, they would say Linkin’ Bridge is a bunch of talented people whose joy and passion for singing have not changed one bit.
10. Angelina Green
Here you have another young woman who impressed judge Heidi Klum and thus got a golden buzzer in season 12 of America’s Got Talent.
Aside from the impressive vocal control for her age, Angelina inspired the audience with the poise, maturity, and emotion of her artistry.
She is also a well-rounded performer who impresses with ukulele, piano, and guitar playing abilities, as well as acting, dancing and – if these were not enough – songwriter skills.
11. Tim Hockenberry
We are kicking off the musical list in style with this versatile vocalist who brings a soulful vibe to the stage.
Tim’s innate ability to perform manifested as soon as he started to sing in a choir, then learning to master the trombone and also while teaching himself to play the piano. These early signs of Tim’s performative track record can partly explain his success on America’s Got Talent when, in 2012, Tim advanced through to the semifinals.
Besides AGT, Tim also made an impression while:
- Headlining festivals like Clearwater Jazz Festival or the Mill Valley Arts Festival.
- Sharing the stage with the likes of Steve Miller or Robert Cray.
- Touring with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
