Here's the New Miss America - Nia Franklin

Miss New York Nia Franklin was crowned Miss America 2019 Sunday night, beating out 50 other hopefuls at the rebooted competition.

Franklin, 24, wowed judges when she performed an opera song during the talent portion of the competition. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Franklin said that she wanted to promote diversity, especially within the arts.

"I just want to thank God for this, it took a lot of perseverance to get here," she said shortly after winning, also thanking her family and especially her father, who is a survivor of cancer.
