Before auditioning for America’s Got Talent, Anna had begun her journey to music with Vine. She was gaining a substantial number of fan following on the platform and sharing her music to her fans made her happy. The lady with over 2 million followers was still struggling with anxiety and when approached by the talent show, she was extremely shy about it all. It was so difficult for Anna that Nick Cannon had to lead her to the stage. Anna then shared her story of struggling with depression and anxiety with a bit of difficulty in her heart. However, with the support from the judges and the viewers she was able to calm herself to sing her beautiful cover of Hallelujah.
