At just 16-years-old, Calysta Bevier has fought a battle harder than some of us twice her age.
Bevier has gone through, and overcome, stage three ovarian cancer. And talents aside, it’s her soul and presence that make her special.
“I don’t compare myself to anyone,” she told judges before her emotion-evoking performance of Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song.”
“I love everything about you,” “You know what? I just had this feeling when you walked out. I can’t explain it. Just your spirit, the choice of song, your voice. I think you’re really special. I’ve just got this really incredible feeling about you,” said Simon Cowell just before hitting the Golden Buzzer.
“I predict great things are going to happen for you, there’s something about you,” he said.
A performance that earns a “Golden Buzzer” from a judge automatically sends that contestant straight to the live taping of the show.
