Darci Lynne Farmer who, at just 12 years of age won NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” for her singing ventriloquism, is taking her act to Western New York. She will bring her all-new “Fresh Out of the Box Tour” to the Gusto Grandstand at the Erie County Fair at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7. General admission tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday.
“This is a perfect, family-friendly show to kick-off the 180th Erie County Fair,” said Jessica Underberg, Erie County fair CEO.
Darci Lynne won NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” by the most votes for a final performance in the history of the show. The singer/ventriloquist impresses audiences across the country with her sweetheart disposition and show-stopping talent beyond her years.
Accompanied by her musical companions, including a diva-esque rabbit (Petunia), a shy and soulful mouse (Oscar), and a sarcastic old woman (Edna), Darci and friends entertain audiences of all ages. In fact, these puppets helped the young entertainer find a voice inside she didn’t know she had – and helped her overcome a lifelong struggle with shyness.
An Oklahoma native, Darci began participating in talent-based pageants at a young age, and picked up ventriloquism shortly after. Two weeks later, Darci began tackling talent shows, eventually making it to the biggest talent show on television: “America’s Got Talent.” Following her big win, she has been featured on NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” Food Network’s “Kids Baking Championship,” “Ellen” and “Today.”
