Darci Lynne Farmer has become a household name in America. The former “America’s Got Talent” winner has never failed to impress. Her perfect singing voice and comedic timing, coupled with her belly-talking skills have won her millions of fans. She has built a larger-than-life reputation for herself, such that tickets to her events sell out within minutes. Farmer was born on October 11, 2004, in Edmond, Oklahoma. Her zodiac sign is Libra, her parents are Misty Farmer and Clarke Farmer, and she is Caucasian. She attended Deer Creek Middle School in Edmond, Oklahoma, until eighth grade when she had to begin homeschooling.
Farmer began singing as a child, and her parents encouraged her to compete in talent-based children’s pageants. When she was 10, they got her into the 2014 International Cinderella Scholarship Program, a talent show. At the end of the event, she was crowned as the International Mini Miss. Apart from winning the crown, she met Laryssa Bonacquisti, a young ventriloquist at the event. Bonacquisti encouraged her to try ventriloquism, and she began ventriloquism almost immediately. She entered the 2014 edition of Edmond’s Got Talent, and she won it with Bonacquisti’s help.
Farmer’s reputation was growing, and she caught the attention of Gary Owen, a ventriloquy coach, and Tiana Plemons, a vocal teacher. They were both impressed by her skills and agreed to work with her. They quickly got results because, in 2015, she won the junior division at Oklahoma’s Got Talent. She also won Broadway, Specialty Acts, and the overall Entertainer of the Year at American Kids. She featured in “Little Big Shots” in 2016, but her fame reached its zenith when she won “America’s Got Talent” with 52 million votes in 2017.
