The Michigan based ventriloquist, artist, and magician has been honing her craft since the age of 8. Obviously, one can't help but wonder how a young child developed even the slightest interest in such an antiquated hobby as ventriloquism in the first place!

According to her website, Brynn asked for her first puppet after seeing an inspiring performance by kid ventriloquist Darci Lynne on America's Got Talent. So it's only fitting that Brynn herself is set to appear this week on the show that started it all!
