Baltimore Teen Blows Judges Away, Proving America's Got Talent

Baltimore Teen Blows Judges Away, Proving America's Got Talent

After opening up about being homeless and living with friends and family, 14-year-old Jayna Brown gave the performance of a lifetime on "America's Got Talent."

"There's so much at stake here. I feel like it's an opportunity to give back to my mom," Brown announced.

But, despite shaky hands from nervousness, Brown blew the judges away with her rendition of Andra Day's "Rise Up."
