The 14-year-old Benicio Bryant is a young singer who received impressive global attention as America’s Got Talent’s star judge Simon Cowell compared him to the One Direction heartthrob, Harry Styles.
Benicio performed Brandi Carlie’s 'The Joke' and took away everyone’s breath right from the AGT’s earlier audition days as he received four big “Yeses.”
Having done well in the Judge Cuts round, the shy Maple Valley teen got sent to the Quarterfinals.
Meanwhile, today, his fans and followers impatiently await for his more stage acts, as they pray for his 2019’s winning. Although, he has experienced a few wins in the past.
Impressed by his regular uploads of acoustic cover and live performances, Benicio got discovered by The Voice Kids in Germany.

Benicio Bryant's Bio, Parents
Benicio, a student at Summit Trail Middle School, got lucky to have Marlo and Jeremy Bryant as his parents.
The high-school sweethearts who grew up in Rainier Beach always encouraged their son’s musical career.
The pair cited how much of nerve-racking it is to see their child perform in front of the whole world, especially at the time of the finals.

Benicio more often gets referred to as “Beni.” As he blew the 8th candle to his birthday, he was convinced that it was music he wanted to do for the rest of his life.
Not being good at Math or having an interest in anything else, did not depress him; instead, he was surer of his call for music.
