I narrowed these reasons down to four, but there are more found in the videos. Take a look and tell us what you think.
- She’s so CUTE! How can you NOT cheer for an All-American adorable young “girl next door” type?
- She pursued her dream against some strong odds. An dramatic story of extreme shyness led to a passion for puppets AND unleashed talent beyond comprehension. Darci went from being socially isolated to socially LOVED by millions.
- She always stayed true to who she was. Darci never let her new found fame-or the millions of video views-get to her ego. (See the quote below.)
- She’s DARN TALENTED and just plain awesome on stage. So good in fact, Darci got the attention of world-famous ventriloquist Terry Fator. Remember she is only 13, and she started her journey when she was only TWELVE!
While some kids might take that million bucks and use for a lavish trip to Disneyland, Darci said she had a couple of specifics in mind: "I have to get my mom a dishwasher, and maybe get a fridge along with it.”
Besides loving puppets, she loves PUPPIES. "I want a pug so bad, because I love puppies and it’s been a long time since I had a puppy. They have wrinkles and fat rolls and they’re so cute."
BUT, this performance a few weeks ago did it for me. And Simon.
