Young ‘America’s Got Talent’ Contestant is Already a Viral Sensation

A 3-year-old Pranysqa Mishra was singing along at karaoke before she could even read the lyrics. Her first favorite song was Sia’s “Cheap Thrills,” which she still loves to this day.

By age 5, Pranysqa had begun performing in her community of Milton, Ontario, Canada. Realizing their daughter’s singing was more than a mere hobby, the Mishra family moved to Tampa, Florida, to open up more career opportunities for Pranysqa

By 7, she was performing the national anthem for the “Washington Wizards, LA Lakers, Miami Marlins, and many more,” the 9-year-old told Fox and Friends.

Pranysqa’s biggest stage came in August 2023, when she sang the national anthem on opening night of the 2023 U.S. Open Tennis Championships. A video posted to the tournament’s social media shows Danny DeVito roundly applauding the 9-year-old’s dynamic performance.

 “It was fantastic and exciting and I loved every moment of it,” Pranysqa told Canadian news station CHCH.

The pint-sized singer added, “My goal is becoming a pop singer and also to touch everybody’s heart with my voice.”

Tune in to NBC tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern to see if America’s Got Talent will help Pranysqa get closer to that goal.
