A deaf singer who hasn't been able to hear music—or the crowds clapping for her—for a decade wowed the judges and the audience on Tuesday night's episode of America's Got Talent.
Mandy Harvey, 29, was just 18 years old when she lost her hearing due to a connective tissue disorder that affected her nerves.
After giving up on any hopes of singing and dropping out of her vocal course, Mandy grieved for a year.
And when her Dad asked her to learn a new song in 2008, Mandy thought it was impossible but it ended up showing her that she was still very much able to sing.
SO SHE DID THIS! Wrote and performed an original song on America's Got Talent, which got her straight through to the live shows with a Golden Buzzer from Simon Cowell!
Mandy uses the floor to feel the vibrations of the music and has learnt to trust her pitch.
