Deaf Singer Mandy Harvey Wows America’s Got Talent Judges With Original Song

America, remember this name: Mandy Harvey. The 29-year-old singer, who is deaf, took to the America’s Got Talent stage with an original song, “Try.” Harvey lost all of her hearing when she was 18 and was accompanied on America’s Got Talent with her interpreter, Sarah.

“I have a connective tissue disorder, so basically I got sick and my nerves deteriorated,” she explained to Simon Cowell.

Harvey has been singing since she was four, but left music after losing her hearing more than 10 years ago. However, she returned to her passion thanks to muscle memory, using visual tuners and trusting my pitch. Before she sang, she took her shoes off to feel the tempo and beat of the music through the floor of the stage.

…While introducing herself to the judges and the audience, Harvey, 29, explained that she lost her hearing at the age of 18 due to a connective tissue disorder, which caused her nerves to deteriorate.

…For her performance, Harvey removed her shoes so that she could feel the rhythm through the floor of the stage. She sang an original song titled “Try” while playing a ukulele, telling viewers that she wrote the song to re-inspire herself. “After I lost my hearing I gave up, but I wanted to do more with my life that just give up,” she said.

The singer received a standing ovation from the crowd and all four judges. “Mandy, I don’t think you’re going to need a translator for this,” Cowell, 57, said before pushing his coveted Golden Buzzer, sending Harvey straight through to the live shows.
