Thia Megia was born in Redwood City, California, in 1995. This 14-year-old girl's biggest passion has been singing for a long as she can remember. She also loves to write stories and songs. Megia started singing at the age of four and wherever she'd go, she'd get up on a table to sing and dance with a spoon as a pretend microphone. At age six, she wrote her very first song, dedicated to her teddy bear. From then on, she's been invited by friends and family to perform for birthday parties and many other occasions. Megia's biggest inspirations are her parents, her siblings and the rest of her family. She has always hoped for an opportunity to be on "America's Got Talent" and is now ready to show America what she has to offer.
The judges are now back in Chicago hoping to find some more impressive acts to advance to Las Vegas. Eighth grader Thia Megia hopes to be one of those acts by performing a song. The judges are floored by Thia's voice. David sums up the audition with "wow." The eighth grader gets the news she's headed to Vegas on "America's Got Talent 4."
Good luck Thia***
