Born with a passion for music, Lavender Darcangelo began singing at 3 years old before she was able to talk. As a person living with both blindness and autism, her disabilities make public performances challenging at times, but after a hiatus, she performed for the first time in years on the "AGT" stage to share her dream with the world. Lavender was adopted later in life by her two fathers, one of whom was her mentor in an after-school musical program. Lavender's passion for music allows her to express her love for her family through performance. In 2019, a video of her singing went viral on social media and garnered media attention worldwide, inspiring her to finally pursue her passion.
