Evelyn Clair Abplanalp[1] (born December 2, 2003), known professionally as Evie Clair, is a musical artist and reality television personality who appeared on the twelfth season of the talent competition series America's Got Talent.


Early life[edit]

Clair is the daughter of Hillary and Amos and is one of five children. She has been playing piano since she was two years old. The day after Clair advanced to the America's Got Talent finals on September 8, 2017 she announced that her father had died from colon cancer.[2][3] Clair and her family are part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.[4]

Career[edit]

Clair began acting as a tap dancer in Anne at Hale Center Theater in Gilbert, Arizona at the age of eight.[5] She has sung the national anthem at an Arizona Diamondbacks' game.[6]

America's Got Talent[edit]

Clair auditioned for America's Got Talent three times before getting on the show, auditioning with "Arms" by Christina Perri and won praise from Perri.[7] Due to her father's death Clair was offered the opportunity to come back the following season however, she chose to stay on course and perform in the upcoming finals.[2][8]

Accommodations were made for Clair on the program. A woman who was overseeing wardrobe often bought two skirts for her, insuring there was enough fabric to create outfits with long enough skirts.[9]
