Inspiring deaf singer wows Simon Cowell: 'One of the most incredible things'

This week a deaf singer named Mandy Harvey performed on "America's Got Talent" and impressed the judges enough that they moved on to the next round. She actually suffered connective tissue disorer about 10 years ago, which lead to her nerves deteriorating and completely losing her sense of hearing in both ears.

The passion for singing is still there for Harvey, so ten years later, she walked onto that stage on America's Got Talent 2017.

When she walked on stage, she needed to have an interpreter so she could understand what the judges were saying.

"Mandy, I don't think you're going to need a translator for this", Cowell said as he hit his golden buzzer.

However, Mandy has been singing since she was a child, and she was determined not to let her hearing loss impact her love of music.

Once Harvey's performance captivated everyone, Simon Cowell pounced on the buzzer as flickering golden confetti dropped down to close out Tuesday night's auditions. She added that she often takes her shoes off while performing because she's able to feel the tempo through vibrations in the floor.

She wasn't the only act to shock the judges. According to Simon Cowell, one of the shows judges, it was "one of the most incredible things" he has ever witnessed. "But I want to do more with my life". "Just the fact that you are you". Pressing the buzzer sends the contestant straight to the live rounds.
