Evie Clair shined in the spotlight on America’s Got Talent. The world discovered that she not only has a voice of gold, she has a heart of gold as well.

Evie is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was wearing her CTR ring on her left hand ring finger while she performed a song dedicated to her father who is battling cancer.

Evie’s father, Amos, is currently serving as Bishop in his local congregation in Arizona and was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer two weeks after receiving his call to serve as Bishop. Though some have wondered why he continues to serve, instead of asking for a release due to his medical difficulties, Amos and his wife Hillary believe that “life is easier when we give God all that we have.”
