A video of a segment on “America’s Got Talent” has been viewed over 66 million times on Facebook and over 3 million times on YouTube in less than 24 hours since being posted on Tuesday evening. This is no ordinary video, obviously. Something truly extraordinary happens.
Make sure you have tissues ready.
The video features 29-year-old Mandy Harvey, a woman who lost all her hearing at the age of 18 due to a medical condition. As she explains, she was singing by the age of four and sang all her life — until she lost her hearing. She appears on stage with her sign language interpreter and explains that she sings by feeling the vibrations in the floor to keep the beat and by trusting her pitch.
Mandy sings a song she composed that talks about how she gave up, but then after several years decided to try again and pursue her dreams. If this doesn’t inspire you, you might need to check for a pulse.
One of the best parts of this video is watching Mandy’s dad watch her from offstage. Watch the moment that melts Simon Cowell’s heart.
Man, this air sure is dusty this spring.
Watch the video below:
Mandy Harvey is proof that you should never give up on your dream.
