One of the most inspiring and astounding acts on this past season of America’s Got Talent was Mandy Harvey. Her voice alone would have been enough to make her get far in the contest. But the most amazing part is the fact that Mandy lost her hearing at age 19. How can someone sing and play so well and not hear? She answers this question and more in her new book Sensing the Rhythm: Finding My Voice in a World Without Sound

Mandy Harvey made it into the top 5 contestants on America’s Got Talent last week, losing out to champion Darci Lynne Farmer. To many people Mandy should have been the winner. Simon in particular seemed taken with her, (she was his golden buzzer). America likes cute blond girls singing with puppets, what can I say. Still, Mandy’s story is quite incredible. She lost her hearing several years ago and her dreams of being a singer seemed hopeless. But she didn’t give up and got all the way to the AGT finals. She discusses her journey in her new book Sensing the Rhythm: Finding My Voice in a World Without Sound. She writes,


“Once again, I will sing with my amazing musicians, everything from sultry ballads to blistering jazz, without hearing a single note. Sound impossible? It does to me, too…What do you do when your dream dies? What do you do when life steps up and smacks you down and then waggles a finger in your face?”

For Mandy Harvey the answer is get off your butt, somehow feel the music through vibrations, and be amazing.
