Simon Realizes The Singer Is Deaf When She Brings Translator With Her, Then She Starts To Sing

The 29-year-old singer revealed on the show how she battled gradual hearing loss until she lost her hearing completely at age 18 while in college. She had to re-learn how to sing through vibrations. On the show, Mandy performed an original song ‘Try’, which caused thunderous applause from the audience and a standing ovation from Howie Mandel even before she finished.

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.
