Joseph Allen AGT

Joseph Allen will perform tonight on "America's Got Talent" during the live shows. 

The Killeen Independent School District announced on its Facebook page that the Ellison High graduate who received a golden buzzer on the popular television show “America’s Got Talent” is performing his live show on NBC tonight at 7 p.m.

Joseph Allen first appeared on the show in June when he auditioned. Allen performed his own hip-hop/r&b song specifically designed for the audition.

Allen went to East Ward Elementary, Liberty Hills Middle School until Patterson opened and graduated from Ellison High School in 2015.

Howie Mandel was the judge who stepped on the golden buzzer after Allen’s audition because Allen told the judges he wanted to leave his footprint on this world, according to the Facebook post.

The Killeen school district is encouraging everyone to tune in tonight to support Allen.

The winner of “America’s Got Talent” receives $1 million and a show in Las Vegas.
