Sophie Pecora: AGT Season 14 Quarter Finals
Hometown: Danville, California
Sophie Pecora wowed the judges this season at age 15 with her performance of her original song, “7th Grade,” for which she received a standing ovation from all four judges. Julianne Hough described her music as "poetry in motion." When Sophie performed her original song "Misfits," she was excited to receive the Golden Buzzer from celebrity judge and songwriter Brad Paisley. Sophie's lyrics are meaningful, relatable and well beyond her years. She is an old soul and has held a strong vision since she was a small child of performing on stages in front of thousands of people.
Sophie began rapping and singing at seven years old and has been working on her music every day since. She began playing the guitar at nine years old, with piano and drums soon following. She has fun sharing her music on YouTube and social media and enjoys collaborating with other artists. When describing herself and her songwriting process, Sophie says, "I may be quiet, but I have a loud mind. I haven't experienced many hard things in life yet, so I use my imagination and put myself in other people's shoes. I hope to touch people's hearts with my songs and have them relate and feel like they're not alone."
