Drake Milligan captured the hearts of everyone on America’s Got Talent when he performed his original song ‘Sounds Like Something I’d Do.’ The 23-year-old country singer from Fort Worth, Texas, performed with his band.
Before Milligan’s performance, Terry Crews introduced himself. Milligan had an acoustic guitar over his shoulder as he described his time growing up and how he started singing.
His dad worked in the scrapyard, and his mom was a veterinarian. When Milligan was seven, he was enthralled by an Elvis impersonator while they were out eating.
That was when he decided he wanted to be just like Elvis. Milligan admitted he was nervous around big crowds, but his band was with him for support.
He had been watching America’s Got Talent since he was a kid, and it’s been a dream for him to perform on that stage. He walked out by himself, and the judges got to know him quickly.
Simon Cowell wishes him luck, and Milligan’s band members come out. Once they’re ready, they start to play the original song. It’s lively and energetic, and Milligan’s voice is smooth like Elvis’.
After their performance, they receive a standing ovation from everyone in the room. Howie Mandell calls Milligan the “New Elvis of Country.” Then all the judges vote yes for Milligan and his band.
