She Took Her Deaf Interpreter on the Stage With Her, I got confused at first but at the end I was in Tears!

By

Mandy Harvey is a deaf singer. She managed to earn the coveted golden buzzer from judge Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent, sending her straight into the semi-finals.

The 29-year-old singer revealed on the show how she battled gradual hearing loss, until she lost her hearing completely aged 18 in college and had to re-learn how to sing through vibrations.

On the show, Mandy performed an original song titled Try, which caused waves of applause from the audience and a standing ovation from judge Howie Mandel before she’d even wrapped up.

Simon Cowell: “I have never seen something like this”

Once Mandy finished the song, Simon said, ‘I don’t think you’re going to need a translator for this,’ before smashing the golden buzzer.

Speaking to Mandy on-stage, he added: ‘That was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen or heard.’
