The young vocal wonder reacts to the judges' praise

 Last night America’s Got Talent actually lived up to its name, thanks to Anna Graceman, an 11-year-old Alaskan. Jaws no doubt dropped across the country when this prodigy belted out a soulful and forceful version of Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You” (see video below).

The remarkable youngster wrote her first song at age 6. You can see videos of many of her notable performances at her website www.annagraceman.com. Don’t all 11-year-olds have their own sites?

At this point, Graceman’s five- year-old sister may be more well known – well, not for long. She’s the star of the supercute viral video (http://youtu.be/0rbMHLDY1pA) in which she insists quite emphatically that she’s not interested in getting married until she has a j-o-b.

After last night’s beyond-impressive performance, Anna will quickly eclipse her little sis.

Has AGT found its next Jackie Evancho?
