Mara Justine, 11, of Galloway Township, will sing on Sunday’s episode of “America’s Got Talent.”

Hundreds of acts auditioned for “America’s Got Talent” this season. The four judges — Heidi Klum, Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Mel B — will decide if the Reeds Road Elementary School sixth grader will continue on the show past Sunday to perform again during “judgment week.” That’s when the judges narrow all the “yes” acts from the audition rounds down to the top 47 acts that will perform at Radio City Music Hall when the live shows begin July 29.

Linwood vocal coach Sal Dupree said the preteen, who has studied with him for the past three years, is amazing and really something special.

“America’s Got Talent” airs 9 p.m. on WCAU-TV 10 and WMGM-TV 40.

Held several positions at The Press including staff writer, entertainment editor, creator and longtime editor of teen section Generation Next.
