One of the most memorable performances of America’s Got Talent this week came from 14-year-old Kelvin Dukes. The young singer from Maryland wowed the judges with his powerful voice.
Kelvin sang Aretha Franklin’s “Ain’t No Way”, winning four “yeses” from the judges to advance to the next round. Check out his incredible audition below and read on to find out more about him.
Kelvin’s parents were there to support him during his hearing. His mother said he had “a lot of personality”, while his father joked that he “keeps us busy”. He apparently sings “all day, every day”. Her parents started to cry when they shared how proud they were.
Ahead of his hearing, Kelvin told the judges he accidentally burped during his first gig at the age of 9. He certainly didn’t burp during his AGT performance. Rather, he received a standing ovation.
