Taking to the America's Got Talent stage, Cristina Rae sang her heart out with not one but two show-stopping numbers, for a chance to make a better life for her and her young son, Jeremiah.

First, she belted out her own rendition of the 1981 hit Phil Collins song, 'In The Air Tonight', blowing the show's judges away with her powerful vocals.

But the infamously ruthless Simon Cowell was left wanting to hear more.

"Can I hear your second song?" Cowell asked. "I want you to imagine that you've just done the concert, and this is your encore moment."

The Nashville native then delivered a soulful rendition of the Rolling Stones' rock anthem 'Gimme Shelter'.

Rae received a standing ovation from the entire crowd, while judge Heidi Klum gave her the coveted Golden Buzzer.

What a voice!
