Credit Unions for Kids connects the credit union movement and Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals to ensure patients at CMN Hospitals are able to get the quality care they need. One such patient, 9-year-old Angelica Hale, will be performing live on "America’s Got Talent" Tuesday at 8 (ET), where she has already wowed the judges with her vocal abilities.
Four years ago, a severe case of pneumonia cause severe damage to Hale’s organs, requiring a kidney transplant. She received her life-saving transplant at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
Hale showed judges that her voice is far bigger than her 9 years of experience would suggest with a performance of Andra Day’s “Rise Up.” As seen in the video below, it only took a few lines for both the judges and audience to experience the power in Hale’s voice.
Hale’s second performance, of Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire,” earned the coveted “golden buzzer,” giving her an automatic trip to the next round.

Credit unions, through Credit Unions for Kids, have raised more than $160 million for CMN Hospitals since 1996 through collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues/associations and business partners. Credit unions are the third largest sponsor of CMN Hospitals.
Every cent donated through the program goes to CMN Hospitals, which provide $3.4 billion in charity care each year to 17 million children.
