Adorable Uncle And Niece Duo Win Over Simon With “Ain't No Mountain High Enough”

This adorable uncle and niece duo wins over Simon with their performance of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” and wow the entire audience with their cuteness quotient! 

Meet Joseph B. Clarke, better known as Jojo, and his pint-sized 14-year-old niece, Bri’Anna Harper. Together these two have something that, according to Simon, is the “definition of joy and magic.” We think you’ll agree!

As the two meet the judges, it is clear that Jojo is a familiar face. This isn’t his first time in front of the “America’s Got Talent” panel; Jojo actually competed in Season 15 of “AGT.” He was then with a gospel vocal trio called RESOUND, eliminated in the Quarterfinals.

Simon asks Jojo what the key thing was that he learned through his prior experience on “AGT,” and Jojo shares that he learned, most of all, to never give up. That answer works for Simon and Heidi. Jojo says that he’s tried to teach that to his niece, because “she’s phenomenal.” Bri gives her uncle an appreciative embrace.

When Simon asks Bri what her dream is and how she’d spend her winnings, she says she wants to make people smile and give to charity. That answer works for everybody! This little lady has got a megawatt smile herself! The two haven’t even started singing, and the judges are in love!  

As they prepare to begin, Jojo asks Bri if she’s ready, and he assures her that she is. Jojo is not only a singer, producer, composer, and arranger—he’s also a vocal coach! Bri is just one of the hundreds of students her uncle has worked with since he founded Clarke Vocal Coaching in 2013. A gifted artist himself, he wants to help other young singers to realize their musical talents, too.

Bri’s Mom, Eboni, stands watching with “AGT” host, Terry Crews. She takes a deep breath in and lets it out, her hands folded in front of her face. But, this isn’t the first time she’s watched her baby girl perform. Bri shared a song on social media in 2018, and that performance went viral, leading to appearances on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” and “The VIEW,” among others. Bri was in 6th grade at the time!

When they start channeling Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, it is pure fun! Jojo and Bri have the energy and the moves, the synergy and the notes! They deliver goosebumps and good feels! Soon, Simon’s eyes fly open when Bri belts out a big one, Howie’s hand is on top of his head in surprise, and Terry and Eboni are in full-blown dance mode by the chorus!  

The audition ends with a standing ovation, hugs and high-fives, and four resounding yesses! Simon says that theirs is among his favorite auditions thus far. High praise! 

Jojo and Bri demonstrate humility as they excitedly thank the judges, and their social media posts illustrate their gratefulness to God. While the judges are praising them, they are praising and thanking Him!
