Darci Lynne won the hearts of America with her undeniable talent and AGT win. The multitalented thirteen-year-old and her friends Petunia, the divaesque rabbit, Oscar, the shy and soulful mouse and Edna, the brash old woman, sold out their first headlining show in just six minutes.
Her polished, impeccable skill as a ventriloquist at such a young age is jaw dropping and sure to inspire the next generation to keep the craft alive, but when she sings, her voice leaves her audiences breathless. Recently Darci was invited to sing the National Anthem at the OKC Energy FC Soccer game where AGT fans heard Darci Lynne sing without a puppet. She then went on to open for Fergie at Caesar’s Palace on New Year’s Eve.
Darci’s opening act is the extraordinary family band, Pelican 212. The band consists of brothers and sisters that honed their skills performing on the sidewalks of Nashville, New Orleans and Pensacola. The group features twelve-year-old trumpet playing identical twins Max and Kolbe, along with siblings Angelle, Marie, Giovanni, Mollie and their oldest sister Katie, who taught many of her younger siblings how to play their instruments. Their mission is to bring generations together through the joy of music, playing songs from the Four Tops, The Jackson 5, The Monkees and James Brown. The horn section has their own feisty version of “When The Saints Go Marching In” echoing their New Orleans ties. Pelican 212 performed at the 2017 Liberty Ball and have been seen on NBC’s “Little Big Shots” and “America’s Got Talent.”
