Dacri Lynne's dad has some pipes like his daughter! (Well, sort of).

How to Watch

Watch America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League on NBC and Peacock.

In a throwback cover that the America's Got Talent Season 12 winner posted to her official TikTok page, she sang a stunning rendition of the classic tune "Yesterday" by The Beatles, taking on the emotional ballad with powerful vibrato.

In a special twist, Lynne put her expert ventriloquist skills to the test by singing some of the lyrics in a different tone while not moving her lips. Her dad would then mouth the lyrics, giving the appearance of a father-daughter duet. Clever? We think so.

What to know about "Yesterday" by The Beatles

Released in 1965 off of their album Help!, "Yesterday" reached the number one position on the US Billboard Hot 100. Written by Paul McCartney, the story goes that he dreamt the melody to the song in his sleep, and rushed to the piano in the middle of the night to record it before he forgot it. After making sure it wasn't subconsciously plagiarized, he composed the lyrics to the song, according to NME.

In 2023, Paste listed "Yesterday" as the 12th best Beatles song. "[Yesterday] is the saddest of the sad breakup songs, but also has a sort of hopefulness about it that really makes you want to curl up under the covers and contemplate life," the outlet wrote of the track, also noting it as "[one of] the best pop songs in history."
