Shane Dawson Discovered Sophie Pecora Before 'America's Got Talent'


We’re going to need more Kleenex! America’s Got Talent is full of amazing performances, but one that really captivated audiences was singer/songwriter Sophie Pecora. The 15-year-old California native performed an original song titled “7th Grade” about bullying, which received a standing ovation from all four judges (Simon Cowell, Gabrielle Union, Howie Mandel, and Julianne Hough). 

“Tonight I’m singing a song I wrote about my own experiences at school. I think a lot of people have gone through some form of bullying. I want to make it clear that everyone experiences it… you’re not alone,” she said during her audition on AGT.
