From America's Got Talent to Superstardom
Terry Fator was the winner of America's Got Talent in 2007, which is worth $1 million and the notoriety that comes with winning a major competition. His eventual victory was unpredictable from the beginning. When he first walked out onto the stage, judge David Hasselhoff said, "Oh no, a ventriloquist." He wowed the panel of judges with his first performance and ran through the competition with relative ease thanks to his creative act, his quick wit and the help of his bevy of puppets. Since his million-dollar win, Fator has consistently been a big draw in live performances all over the country.

This ventriloquist began his practice at a young age when he was in the fifth grade. He said he read a book called Ventriloquism for Fun and Profit by Paul Winchell, and he went on learning and practicing from there. He used to like to sing in his car, but he didn't want to look foolish to the other drivers, so he sang without moving his lips, developing both his ventriloquist skills and his singing chops.
