America's Got Talent Wiki

Zion Clark was an acrobat from Season 18 of America's Got Talent. He finished in the Top 5 of his Semifinal week.


Zion Clark was born in Columbus, Ohio, with a rare birth defect called Caudal Regression Syndrome that left him without legs. Zion grew up in the foster care system before being fostered when his care home were about to throw him out and as such he never knew his birth parents. Before he was fostered his name was Zion Zachariah Daniels but it was changed to Zion Clark after he was fostered. Zion now lives in Canton, Ohio. His adoptive mother is very supportive of his dreams & ambitions and never allows him to quit without a fight, regardless as to how many attempts that it takes for him to professionally succeed.

He is an All-American wrestler, an MMA fighter, a Guinness World Record holder, the subject of an EMMY Award winning Netflix documentary, an author, and an internationally acclaimed speaker. Due to his tremendous upper body strength and athleticism, Zion also began pursuing interests in power-lifting (bench press), wheelchair bodybuilding, and the circus arts.

Zion has been featured in Forbes, Men's Health, the Wall Street Journal, on CNN, NBC, ABC, Fox, ESPN, The Ellen Show, and commercials for Apple that aired during the 2020 Super Bowl, among numerous additional media outlets.

Zion was chosen to advance to the Semifinals.
