The newly crowned “America’s Got Talent” champ Shin Lim has some big plans for his winnings.
“I actually had a couple of friends recently struggling with brain cancer so I think I want to contribute a little bit to research and development and try to figure it out so we can fight that,” the magician tells Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on “The Ellen Show”, leaving the talk show host in awe with his magic tricks.
On Wednesday night’s shocking finale, 26-year-old Lim was named the season 13 winner after wowing the judges with his sleight-of-hand tricks.
In addition to helping others with his $1-million prize, Shin also plans to upgrade his ride.
“I have a crummy car so I need to get a new car with that,” he says.
