Poplyfe (also stylized in all caps) is a teen pop band from Oakland, California, that was a contestant on season 6 of America's Got Talent. They finished in fourth place on the show after performing a medley by Queen in the finals.
The band's members are Kehlani Parrish, Dylan Wiggins, Jaden Wiggins and Ali-Khan Lochin. They have featured various musicians and vocalists, including Zendaya, Gabi Wilson, Denzel Merrit, Dillon Ingram, Cole Berliner, Jared Anderson and Chasity Hinson. On America's Got Talent, their performers ranged in age from 13 to 18. Both Dylan and Jaden Wiggins are sons of producer D'wayne Wiggins, a member of Tony! Toni! Toné! and Poplyfe's producer. Lochin is a cousin of the Wiggins brothers. Most of the group's members are students at Oakland School for the Arts.
Poplyfe member Kehlani Parrish left PopLyfe soon after the end of America's Got Talent due to several managerial and contractual disputes.
