TORONTO - Roberta Battaglia has taken the world by storm with her dynamic voice. Had she won first prize in America's Got Talent (the winner is Brandon Leake, Roberta finished fourth), it would have been like having the cherry on the cake. Her performance has been a delight to experience.
She went up against other talented competitors in the grand finale of America’s Got Talent, 15th season. The 11-year old from Toronto, has everything to be proud of, and we are proud of her.
The sky is the limit for the young, Italian-Canadian singer. Proud parents, Alessandro – a talented musician himself – and mamma Gabriella, have nurtured and supported their daughter’s passion and love of singing from the tender age of three.
In a Facebook post, Roberta thanked her parents, supporters, fellow contestants and staff at AGT. Extending her gratitude to all of Canada, America and people all over the world, she said, “I am so grateful that I had this wonderful experience and the best part was that I shared it with all of you!”
