Ann Wilson,… Janis Joplin,… Courtney Hadwin?! One of these things is not like the other, but that may not be for long.

13-year old Hadwin melded the voice of Joplin with the furious stage moves of Alanis Morissette in wowing the judges on “America’s Got Talent” recently with a rendition of the Otis Redding classic “Hard To Handle”. So much so that Howie Mandel fast-tracked her through to the live show!

First off, she has awesome taste music covering the likes of Otis Redding in her “AGT” audition to Aerosmith James Brown and Tina Turner. On top of that, this little girl has got some serious pipes!
