Courtney Hadwin - Quarter Finals
Courtney Hadwin is a 13-year-old girl from England who was the lucky recipient of Howie Mandel's Golden Buzzer this season. Behind the lights and cameras, Courtney is a quiet girl. But once she's on stage, she transforms. Singing and performing is everything to Courtney, and she can't remember a time when she ever wanted to do anything else. Courtney is inspired by singers like Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Etta James and James Brown. She loves their individuality and the way they could make any song their own, not to mention the way they worked a stage.
