Singer Mandy Harvey is the latest contestant on America's Got Talent to receive praise from Simon Cowell.

Praise in the form of his Golden Buzzer. 

The 29 year old from Florida lost her hearing over ten years ago from a connective tissue disorder which deteriorated her nerves.

The singer doesn't wear shoes on stage so she can feel the vibrations of the music through the floor. 

Mandy performed her original song 'Try' and when asked what the song was about replied "After I lost my hearing, I gave up, but I want to do more with my life than just give up."

The video has already got 95 million views on the show's Facebook page and over six million views on YouTube. 

Check out her performance here (and be warned you may need the tissues for this one)
