Darci Lynne and Friends To Perform Closing Night

Just confirmed by National Cherry Festival officials! Darci Lynne Farmer, an American Ventriloquist. Darci, winner of Season Twelve of the NBC  show America’s Got Talent, will perform on 

the Pepsi Bay Side Music Stage, Presented By Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan on Saturday, July7th.  “This is the perfect family friendly show on the Bay Side Music Stage to close out our Festival. Festival goers of all ages will enjoy this evening filled with comedy, song and fun,” said Kat Paye, Executive Director.

Ventriloquist, Darci Lynne is the youngest contestant to ever win “America’s Got Talent.” Following AGT she sold out her first headlining show in six minutes, and added more shows. She is a young ventriloquist who is inspiring the next generation to keep the art alive. Darci is someone to watch for as her career is just getting started.

Growing up in Oklahoma,


Darci is very close to her family and relies on their support and encouragement. In her younger years, she had a timid demeanor that she was able to overcome through entering talent-based pageants. She was introduced to the art of ventriloquism and decided to try it out for herself. Darci had hard work, grit, and discipline already instilled in her, since she came from a gymnastics background where she practiced 30 hours a week. After only having her first puppet for two weeks, Darci was determined to audition for her first talent show never knowing it would lead her to audition for the biggest talent show on earth.

Now, being on stage makes her feel like she is an entirely new person.  Darci dazzles live audiences, leaving them with smiles on their faces. Performing has helped Darci learn abo


ut herself and who she can be. She is very grateful to her mentor Gary Owen and vocal coach Tiana Plemons for all they have done for her.

During her “America’s Got Talent” audition Darci received the golden buzzer sending her straight to the Quarterfinals. Her winning performance has over 21million views on AGT’s YouTube video, more than any other finalist performance on the show. Darci will be touring into next year and hopes to continue to uplift people as they watch her.
