Move over, Ed Sheeran – and make some room for newcomer Chase Goehring. The Tennessee native is about to take the world by storm, and he is giving us all major Ed vibes. You're going to want to remember his name – which is why we're here to break it all down for you and hit you with all the information you need to know about the swoon-worthy singer.
Who is Chase Goehring?
Chase Goehring received major attention after his standout performance of an original song titled “A Capella” on Season 12 of America's Got Talent, where he was competing for the top prize.
His original song "Mirror," which he performed on the final week of the show, got a great reaction out of Simon Cowell – and we all know he isn't easily impressed! "“Bloody loved it," he said.
Who gave Chase Goehring the Golden Buzzer on America's Got Talent?
Record label executive and producer DJ Khaled, a judge from Season 12 of America's Got Talent, sent Chase straight to the live show round by hitting the infamous metallic button. Each judge may only use the Golden Buzzer one one contestant per season, and we think it's safe to say DJ Khaled selected wisely.
“The lyrics are real and authentic, the way you breakin’ it down. You’re on your way to be a star. This show and this stage is going to make you into a superstar,” DJ Khaled said. “We got to work together.”
Did Chase Goehring win America's Got Talent?
Chase didn't win the $1 million grand prize. Twelve-year-old Ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer was named the Season 12 winner of AGT on Wednesday, September 20, 2017.
