Good morning Rick. I am a 61 year old male that plays and sings country music. I am a great singer for 61 years old. Patrick Contresas would be a great choice for a front of the line ticket but I would love a shot at it as well. Thanks for your consideration.

Tori Perkins says:

Hello Mr. Bentley,
My name is Tori Perkins and my best friend’s name is Tiffany Austin. On February 9, we are auditioning for America’s Got Talent in Los Angeles. We are both singers who strive to show the world our talent and passion for music. We have chosen to sing Story Of My Life by One Direction because the band is one of our inspirations and we have found harmonies in that song that display how our voices blend well together. We both have had singing experience as we both had sung in church, as well as, high school choirs. We would be grateful for front-of-the-line passes because we would like to show the world what we are made of.
Thank you for your consideration!
