Deaf Singer Earns Simon’s Golden Buzzer With Original Song “Try” On America’s Got Talent

The 29-year-old singer revealed on the show how she battled gradual hearing loss, until she lost her hearing completely aged 18 in college and had to re-learn how to sing through vibrations.

On the show, Mandy performed an original song titled Try, which caused waves of applause from the audience and a standing ovation from judge Howie Mandel before she’d even wrapped up.

Once Mandy finished the song, Simon said, “I don’t think you’re going to need a translator for this,” before smashing the golden buzzer.
