Background

Daneliya Tuleshova is a 14-year-old singer from Kazakhstan. She lives with her parents, brother, sister, two hamsters (Vanya, Turbo), dog (Mimi), two cats (Zhasmin, Smo) and her fish. She started singing when she was 10 years old, performing during dinner for her family. Aside from singing, Daneliya enjoys school, reading, cooking pancakes, playing with her best friends and watching American shows on Netflix, but her favorite activity is posting dance videos on TikTok. Daneliya has watched America's Got Talent for many years and dreamed of one day being able to come to America and perform on the AGT stage. She never thought it would be possible, so this all still feels like a dream to her. She hopes to one day be just as big as her inspiration, Beyonce.

She was Kazakhstan's first ever participant at the 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Belarus, where she finished 6th overall. In 2019, she competed on the lone season of The World's Best, finishing in the top 8.
