Sofie Dossi blew the country away on America’s Got Talent. More recently, she stunned an arena full of fans at Golden 1 Center with her incredible halftime performance during Thursday night’s Kings vs. Lakers game.
Between the never-ending line of admirers requesting a photo with the rising star, Golden 1 Center had a chance to catch up with the bubbly 15-year-old about life after AGT and advice for other young dreamers.
Golden 1 Center: How did you get started with contortion?
Sofie Dossi: I was always flexible, like I’d watch TV with feet over my head. My parents kind of thought ‘Oh that’s just what normal girls do’ but then I saw a YouTube video of a contortionist and I was like ‘Oh, this isn’t normal this is actually unique!’ And I fell in love with watching contortion, so I started teaching myself, and it’s been going pretty good.
Golden 1 Center: How has being on America’s Got Talent changed your life?
Sofie Dossi: In opening new opportunities and just different shows around the world – it’s just so fun to be doing what I love.
Golden 1 Center: What advice do you have for other young girls or boys wanting to pursue their dreams?
Sofie Dossi: Anything you put your mind to, you can accomplish it if you just put your mind to it.
Golden 1 Center: Is this your first Sacramento Kings game?
Sofie Dossi: It’s my first time at a Kings game, and just my second time performing at a basketball game!
