Who is Melissa Villaseñor?

In summer of 2011 she was a retail worker who auditioned for America’s Got Talent and made the audience and judges fall in love with her:

 

Although she did not win she made it as a Top 16 semifinalist where it was obvious that girl was not just funny but she could also sing:

But before her sudden popularity, Villaseñor already had a huge following on Instagram and Snapchat.
