Peter Rosalita is living proof that good things really do come in small packages.
For his semifinal appearance on America’s Got Talent, the 10-year-old singer performed “Without You,” the epic ballad written by members of Badfinger, made famous in the ‘70s by the late Harry Nilsson, and covered by Mariah Carey in the ‘90s.
Aged just 10, the Filipino singer wasn’t around when Carey cut her cover. Like Mariah, Rosalita delivered a package of drama, high notes and a key change.
Rosalita’s run in season 16 of AGT has featured a steady dose of diva songs. He auditioned with Celine Dion’s “All by Myself” and hit Whitney Houston’s Bodyguard classic “I Have Nothing” for the quarterfinals.
