Ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer credits God for blessing her with the talent that won her $1 million on the television show “America’s Got Talent.”
The 13-year-old and her family are still adjusting to the changes that have resulted from her first-place finish on the show. They are members of OKC-Church of the Servant.
Darci’s parents are Clarke and Misty Farmer, and she has three brothers, Nick, Dalton, and Nate.
Mom Misty said she has advised her daughter to “trust that God’s going to take care of you.”
Darci said she plans to give some of her prize money to the church for mission work. OKC-Servant is “a big family, so supportive. I got everybody here to vote for me.”
Chuck Weatherford, who is director of music ministries at OKC-Servant, quipped that Darci is “the most famous Methodist I know.”
The good publicity from her win “is good for the Methodist church,” he said.
Mother and daughter sing together at the church on Mother’s Day. Weatherford said, “They always bring the house down.”
