Deaf Singer On America's Got Talent Earns Golden Buzzer


Share this article


Last night 29-year-old Mandy Harvey impressed not only the crowd on America's Got Talent with her amazing voice but got Simon Cowell to press his coveted Golden Buzzer. 

Mandy lost her hearing over a decade ago from a connective tissue disorder which deteriorated her nerves but she hasn't let that hold her back.  

She doesn't wear shoes on stage while she is performing so she can feel the vibrations of the music and tempo through the floor. 

The show's official Facebook page shared a video Mandy's audition and it already has over 20 million views. 

Twitter went wild after Mandy's performance, with Tyra Banks even giving her a shoutout.
