Local “AGT” Update

Ashley Marina is only 12-years-old, but this local girl stunned the America’s Got Talent judges in her emotional auditions.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the AGT judges had the difficult task of cutting the competition in half based off original auditions and Ashley did not make it through.

She did not let that bring her down. We caught up with her who said just being a part of “America’s Got Talent” was an experience in itself -- plus she shared a new original song with us written about her time on the show.
