RAE’S BACKGROUND STORY

For her initial audition for AGT, Rae received a Golden Buzzer from judge Heidi Klum when the actress was left in awe of her story and talent. The singer moved the AGT judges when she shared her story of single motherhood, homelessness, and sleeping in her car while pregnant.

Even though Cristina Rae had a tough time with her finances, her son didn’t know about it.

Rae has been raising her toddler son, Jeremiah, on her own. The contestant then continued stunning the nation with her incredible performance during the quarterfinals and an impassioned rendition of the track “Hallelujah.”

CRISTINA’S WISHES FOR SON

Before Tuesday’s performance, Rae explained how her son was her life’s inspiration and motivation. In a pre-taped airing before her performance she said:

"I want Jeremiah to seat world as a special, magical place."

Having been homeless, the contestant explained that she felt it was her duty to shelter her son from all the bad things she experienced. If she keeps performing the way she has, she might end up changing her story to something more positive.
