Sep 04, 2019 08:50PM ● By Sheila Mahan

America's Got Talent contestant Barbara Padilla will perform at the Santa Fe College Fine Arts Hall at 4 p.m., September 29, to benefit the Climb for Cancer Foundation. She says, "The Climb for Cancer Foundation is a Gainesville organization that exists to improve the mental, physical and social well-being of cancer patients, survivors and their caregivers through funding of enrichment programs in arts, nature, sports and medicine. All money and proceeds will stay right here locally, and provides a way for you to personally help families affected by cancer.”


Soprano and cancer survivor Padilla’s performance of Charles Gounod's Ave Maria prompted judge Piers Morgan to declare, "It was the greatest single vocal performance we've ever had on America's Got Talent."


Location: 3000 NW 83rd St., Gainesville. Sponsorships and VIP seating are available. For tickets, visit
