Ryan was the first winner of NBC’s America’s Got Talent at the age of eleven. She auditioned for Talent in 2006 and amazed the judges with her big voice. Singing two Broadway show tunes along the way, Ryan was announced as the winner of season one on August 17. Her self-titled first album was released later in 2006, followed by two Christmas albums. Two singles followed in 2007 and 2010; also in 2010, she made an acting appearance in a music video by The Wrecking.

In 2012, Ryan joined the cast of the independent film We Are Kings, portraying one of two down-on-their-luck teen musicians who are guided by an angel to save an elder bluesman from freezing to death. The film premiered in September 2014, and the video for her single "Broken Down House" was released in October. Following a delay due to health problems, her original song "One Day" premiered in May 2017; "What I Gotta Do" and "Man Down" followed in June.
