America's Got Talent


  • Terry is one of the nicest persons I have ever met in my 62 years. I am also from Flint and we have some mutual friends that we would get together with on occasions and have a great time with everyone it didn't matter where you were from or anything other than just a bunch of friends kickin it together.

  • It’s funny to listen to Howie because my grandson was about that same size at 16. He was 4’10” 85 lbs. Never thought he would grow and getting so worried. He’s 18 now, not huge, but bigger at 5’7” 135 lbs. which is really good because his mom is 4’9”!

  • Howie tho.. dreams do come true I wanted to be taller and he was :)

  • Sofia like artist in indonesia. Valerie thomas

  • I was a little disappointed to not see pictures of them at 16....

  • Is that cover photo an edited one?

  • Hadir

  • Sophia still looks 16 ... omg she’s ageless!

    • It’s Sofia, but you’re right

  • That’s not the younger versions of them in the thumbnail. I’m not falling for it.

  • *_Remember people, live for today, forget about yesterday and let tomorrow worry about Itself :) wishing you all the very best that life has to offer._*
