Mandy Harvey, Deaf Singer, Finds an Audience. And Leaves It Weeping
"After I lost my hearing, I gave up," she said. "But I want to do more with my life than just give up." Mandy Harvey brought the audience to tears in her performance, which Simon Cowell called "one of the most amazing things" he'd ever heard.
This viral video of a deaf woman, Mandy Harvey, belting out angelic words in a pristine voice on "America's Got Talent" picked up steam online this week as viewers wept at their computer screens at the pure beauty of this woman's original song and her sweet, sweet voice.
"After I lost my hearing, I gave up," she said. "But I want to do more with my life than just give up." She explained that after a period of not performing, she learned how to sing again by using tools such as "visual tuners", and added that she performs without wearing shoes so she can feel a song's beat through floor vibrations.
