Who Is Freckled
Zelda From
America's Got
Talent?
By DEEPAYAN SENGUPTA
"America's Got Talent," currently in the midst of Season 17, has had its share of memorable acts over the years. The latest contestant to make a mark on the "America's Got Talent" stage is Freckled Zelda, who calls herself a "music fairy" from the "freckled forest."
The contestant drew the judges’ attention to the ocarina, a type of wind instrument, around her neck, and informed them that it's also known as a sweet potato flute. Singing an ocarina-accompanied rendition "Colors of the Wind," Freckled Zelda proceeded to win over the initially skeptical judges, earning a “Yes” from all four of them.
Freckled Zelda is the pseudonym of Rachael Wilson, a 19-year-old musician specializing in playing the ocarina. She has a YouTube and TikTok channel and also plays original songs, which are available on Spotify.
