Gabriel Henrique was a singer from Season 18 of America's Got Talent. He finished in 3rd place in his Semifinal week and was nominated for the Wild Card vote, but did not advance.


Brazilian singer Gabriel Henrique, 27, has always dreamed of coming to the United States and performing on the “AGT” stage. With many of his family members in the music industry, he began singing when he was 3, encouraged by his father. Gabriel first gained national attention by competing on a Brazilian show, where he displayed his big voice and vocal range, and has been a local sensation ever since.


Gabriel Henrique's audition in Episode 1808 consisted of singing Whitney Houston's "Run To You". Moved by his performance, Sofia Vergara hit the Golden Buzzer, sending him directly to the Semifinals.


Gabriel Henrique's Semifinals performance in Episode 1818 consisted of singing Jacob Banks' "Something Beautiful". Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara and Simon Cowell all gave him standing ovations. He received enough votes to enter the top 5 of the night in Episode 1819 along with Ramadhani Brothers instead of Lachuné, and the top 3 instead of Eduardo Antonio Trevino and Avantgardey. He finished in 3rd place behind 82nd Airborne Chorus and Ramadhani Brothers, eliminating him from the competition.
