Edgar On America's Got Talent

Edgar is a very talented family band competing on the 11th season of America's Got Talent.  They are from Toluca Lake, California and feature three members: Nikki Leonti-Edgar, Ryan Edgar and Jaslyn Edgar.  Rickey reports that they are the contestants to beat in the competition.  Nikki has already performed with famous artists including Carrie Underwod, Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato and CeeLo Green.

According to Zap 2 It the family has impressed the judges with Nikki leading the way.  Go head and get your Cookie Lyon on girl! While most family groups are made up of siblings, Edgar features Nikki's husband, Ryan and their daughter, Jaslyn.  If there's one lesson that Empire teaches us it's that mixing family and business can be difficult but Edgar is proving that it doesn't have to be so complicated.

There's nothing like an interesting story and Nikki was happy to share her journey with viewers.  She explained that at one point, she had high hopes of becoming a successful Christian singer.  They say if you ever want to make God laugh, make a plan.

Nikki was chasing her dream, traveling the country and she even had songs on the radio.  Then, she found out that she was pregnant with Jaslyn.  The music industry can be unforgiving and didn't waste any time forcing her out.  She's back and fiercer than ever!
