Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania vocalist Aubrey Burchell, age 21 not only sings well but also works at Target. She reveals to the judges that she goes to the restroom during her breaks to keep herself "sane," where she puts up her camera and sings. She most aspires to fill up venues all around the world, though. She fantasizes about winning Grammys, but her level I autism has just lately been identified. “As a recently diagnosed level-one autistic, a very large portion of my life, I struggled," Aubrey addressed the judges and the 'America's Got Talent' audience, saying, "I want to show other young autistics that are suffering in silence that you can follow your passion and not fit in the box and do what you do and just eat at it.” Heidi applauds her for influencing so many people by herself and coming out to the world as Aubrey sobs while narrating her story.
