CLEVELAND — The Republican National Convention has been filled with unforgettable moments this week, but it saved one of its best for last Thursday night.

Six-year-old Heavenly Joy stole the show Thursday shocking viewers with her rendition of “America The Beautiful” to kick off the convention’s final day. She also performed “Let There Be Peace On Earth.”

Heavenly received a standing ovation from those in attendance and those at home.

The little singer isn’t new to the spotlight though. Heavenly is the daughter of Grammy Award winning record producer Rodney Jerkins and singer Joy Enriquez.

Joy also shot to fame after auditioning for America’s Got Talent in 2015 and most recently on Little Big Shots with host Steve Harvey.

Heavenly also has a Twitter page where she asked for prayers ahead of her big performance Thursday.


Here is some reaction from Twitter after Heavenly’s performance.
