The voice of a young woman so beautiful and strange it lands on Golden Buzzer. She has a heart of gold and the voice to match. Remember the name Lily Meola. This 27-year-old lady had it all once. Lily is a singer and songwriter from Maui, Hawaii who was living her “waking dream”.
She was signed to a major label and even got to tour with Willie Nelson. Then she sang with Steven Tyler, Kris Kristofferson and Sammy Hagar. Meola’s idols are Ella Fitzgerald, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Cat Stevens and James Taylor.
Standing before Judges Howie Mandel. Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara and Simon Cowell, Meola performed an original song. His original song “Daydreams” has evolved over the years. It was written when everything was going well for her, including a successful career in music as she had all the support.
“I wrote it at a time when things were really beautiful and I was basically daydreaming. I had a recording contract with a major. I had a publishing contract. I had butterflies that I was hatching. It was magical. And so, that’s where he was born.
