HARRINGTON — Darci Lynne Farmer, who won NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” in 2017 for her singing ventriloquism, will be perform with her puppets at the M&T Bank Grandstand at the Delaware State Fair on July 24.

The Delaware State Fair announced the first installment of the concert lineup on Wednesday. The fair’s centennial celebration is scheduled to take place July 18-27..

Darci Lynne won NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” at just 12 years old by the most votes for a final performance in the history of the show. The singer/ventriloquist has spent the days since the show traveling across the country.

She is accompanied on stage by her musical friends including a divaesque rabbit: Petunia, a shy and soulful mouse: Oscar and a sarcastic old woman: Edna. Singing through her friends has helped the young entertainer find a voice inside and in turn she has overcome a lifelong struggle with shyness.

An Oklahoma native, Darci began participating in talent-based pageants at a young age, and picked up ventriloquism shortly after. Two weeks later, Darci began tackling talent shows, eventually making it to NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

Following her big win, she has been featured on NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” Food Network’s “Kids Baking Championship,” “Ellen” and “Today” Her first Christmas special “Darci Lynne: My Hometown Christmas” will air Dec. 11 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

She will return to NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” for the first “The Champions” season, pitting contestants from 184 countries around the world who will return to the stage and compete for the title of AGT Champion. The new spin-off series is set to premiere Jan. 7 on NBC.
