AGT contestant Aubrey Burchell has been diagnosed with Level 1 autism
When Aubrey Burchell took the stage, the AGT audience gave her a standing ovation. The 21-year-old singer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania said she works at Target and goes into the bathroom with her phone to sing. The contestant hopes to sell out stadiums around the world and win a GRAMMY. She also spoke about her new diagnosis of Level 1 autism and how she coped with her difficulties. She said she wants to be an encouragement to those who have gone through similar experiences. According to the AGT contestant:
“I want to encourage other young autistic people who suffer in silence that you can follow your passion, not stand in a box and do what you love.”
Aubrey then brought the judges and audience to tears with her rendition of The Weeknd’s Call Out My Name. The judges praised her for being brave and sharing her story, with Sofia calling her “the total package”. The AGT judge believed that the contestant had a good chance of winning the competition. Aubrey was born on January 6, 2001 and developed a passion for music early on. Her father was a musician and together they created little melodies. The singer’s first listeners were in preschool age. Since then, she has performed at local charity events. Since the age of 15, he has also been working as a voice coach.
After finishing in the American Idol Top 70, the AGT contender opened up about her experience in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, saying:
“It is one of my proudest achievements and something I never dreamed I would do. I’m glad for the opportunity that served as a launching pad for what I feel is to come later.”

Aubrey sang at venues in western Pennsylvania in November 2020, a year after the virus hit, when performing live became impossible. The singer said it was a difficult time for her and spending long hours at Target without being able to sing was mentally draining.
However, the AGT contestant has maintained her positive attitude as she continues to share videos of herself singing online and on social media channels. When she lost one of her close friends in 2021, she got the chance to perform on America’s Got Talent after some producers noticed one of her videos and invited her to audition.
When asked about her experience with AGT, she revealed:
“This seems to be the light at the end of the tunnel, the return of music. It just goes to show that if you’re a local artist, you should stand out. I don’t care if you sing while sitting on the toilet floor. Be visible and exhibit your work.”
Aubrey has more than 9k followers on Instagram, where she routinely posts videos of herself singing, performing, and other TikTok updates. Fill The Void, Big White Room, Nothin On Me, Love Murder Misery, Memory and Fate are among her hits.
Bay Turner, Camille K., The Nerveless Nocks, Unreal Crew, Mind2Mind and David Snyder are among the other contenders slated to perform at this week’s edition. All four judges will entertain the audience.
