Shaquira McGrath Performances 

Shaquira displayed such confidence and enthusiasm while auditioning for AGT that it brought the audience almost to a state of reverie. For her auditioning round, got a standing ovation from not just the public but also the judges. To be at the receiving end of such love and warmth is a dream come true for her. She excels in country music and has a powerful voice that touches the soul.

She performed on “Redneck Woman” by Gretchen Wilson for this round and received a shoutout from Wilson herself, who had sung this country music in 2004. She cleared the audition with a yes from all the three judges, Howie Mandel, Sofia Vergara, and Simon Cowell.

 

For her Judge Cuts round, Shaquira had picked up Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”, being impacted by the ongoing pandemic. She had told an AGT reporter that she hopes to use her voice “to bring joy and happiness to those who are hurting, hopeless, and in need of inspiration.” 

Shaquira had chosen to perform on a rather difficult song for her quarterfinal round. It is titled “What Hurts the Most” by Rascal Flatts. Two of the judges, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara, could not resist getting on their feet to appreciate her extraordinary performance and even requested AGT’s fans to vote for the talented singer. 

Shaquira has successfully reached the next step of the competition, that is, the semi-final round and is more than ready to own the stage again. 

The much-loved country singer and powerful performer, Shaquira frequently posts her videos of singing alone or in a group with her friends. Lately, she has started a Singing Sundays tradition in which she has been encouraging people to bring their voice out, melodious or not.
