PopLyfe from "America's Got Talent 2011" is one of the Top 48 acts in Season 6 of the NBC talent competition series.

PopLyfe is a rock and soul band from Oakland, California, whose six members are all under the age of 18. The group got their start in the living room of keyboardist and musical director Dylan Wiggins' (15) home. The oldest son of legendary artist and producer D'Wayne Wiggins of Tony Toni Tone, it's no surprise that Wiggins' home would be the meeting place for friends to hang out and jam on instruments, including multiple guitars, drums, keyboards and a grand piano.

PopLyfe was born a few years ago when Dylan and his best friend, drummer Denzel Merritt (15), his cousin Ali-Khan Lochin (16) on the turntables, and little brother Jaden Wiggins (12) on bass guitar began to jam together on a regular basis. When vocalist (and the band's only girl) Kehlani Parrish (16) and guitarist Dillon Ingram (14) joined in, the group was already performing at local events. They soon moved on to larger venues, have recorded a few songs, and continue to support community events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Growing up in a community that has produced generations of musicians and artists who have changed the music industry, PopLyfe's focus on musicianship reinforces the value of live music, hence their motto "Go LIVE or Go HOME!"

When not in rehearsal or attending school, the group enjoys participating in activities: Jaden might be found acting or cooking savory treats, Kehlani practicing with her dance troupe, Dillon playing lacrosse or skiing, Ali-Kahn acting or modeling, and Dylan and Denzel off skateboarding or BMX biking.
