Deaf singer’s emotional song moves judges, but their feedback has her in tears.

The world was first introduced to 29-year-old musician Mandy Harvey this summer when she won a ‘golden buzzer’ on ‘America’s Got Talent.’

She writes her own music, sings and plays the ukelele. And even more impressively, she does it all completely deaf.

She began losing her hearing at age 18 due to a connective tissue disorder. She was already serious about music at that age and devastated by the loss of hearing, but she refused to stop making music.

Instead, she adapted, learning how to play music again using muscle memory, visual tuners and other cues to help her ‘hear’ music.

In her latest performance on the talent show, she sang another original song, ‘Mara’s Song,’ which she wrote for her cousin’s wedding day.

Watch the video below to watch Mandy, and see just how it left Simon Cowell fighting back tears…
