Get to know AGT’s Lily Meola

Born in Hawaii and now residing in California, Lily Meola is a singer-songwriter.

She’s 27 years old and, as per Rolling Stone, she once recorded a duet with Willie Nelson.

Lily was signed to a record label in her early twenties and said that she was taking to the AGT stage in a bid to kick off her music career after coming to terms with the death of her mother.

Explaining the name of her audition song on America’s Got Talent, Lily said that she wrote Daydream at a time in her life when she was living her daydream but now the song has a different meaning for her.

The 27-year-old said that her life “flipped upside down” when her mother was diagnosed with cancer and she had to become her mother’s full-time caretaker.

Lily lost her record deal during that time and her mother passed away.

During her audition, Lily’s song moved Heidi Klum to tears and many fans took to Twitter to share that they were heading straight to streaming services to download Daydream.
