America's Got Talent 2017 - Golden Buzzer Performance (VIDEO)
Her message is universal....Hope, Dream, Believe, no matter what...
Mandy Harvey is a deaf American singer-songwriter. A Vocal Music Education major at Colorado State University, Mandy lost her residual hearing in 2006-2007 at age eighteen due to a neurological disorder, and left the program. She pursued several career options, including education, but returned to music in 2008. She quickly became a regular performer at Jay's Bistro in Fort Collins and then branched out to having regular concerts at Dazzle Jazz Lounge in Denver (Top 100 Jazz venues in the world).
Mandy’s music has begun to attract the attention of those around the world, adding to her message of hope, dream and believe. For instance, CNN’s Great Big Story captured over 6 million hits on social media, Burt’s Bees signed her up for their remarkable women campaign, NBC Nightly News profiled her, and she has started performing at the worlds most prestigious clubs, concert stages and festivals around the country.
Not content to rest on her burgeoning recording career, her live performances, and her motivational speaking, Mandy is underway writing her first book, and helping others to realize their dreams and pursue their hopes. As a Spokesperson for No Barriers USA and Invisible Disabilities Association, she travels the country to heighten awareness, break down blocks, challenge stereotypes, and lead the charge toward a brighter future for all.
While her dream of becoming a choir director has died, the music is still alive and well within her. Though her hearing loss is profound, her timing, pitch and passion are perfect. With support from friends, family and her faith, Mandy continues to find joy in the music.
“Continue to hope, and make your dreams a reality.” - Mandy Harvey
"She demonstrates the power available to us when we give up our attachment to outcome and focus only on what we do now. She reminds us that through doing what we love and giving what we have, we enter a realm of hope and possibility. We experience freedom to be all that we are." - Jan Waterman (Healing Path Magazine, March 2009 issue "Mandy Harvey: No Silent Songs"
“From the first note, Mandy Harvey tames her audience into stunned appreciation as she glides pitch- perfect from breathy jazz standard to growling blues.... At show’ s end the audience is on its feet. Some know the secret. Harvey has not heard any of it – not the applause, not the talent of the musicians who shared the stage, not her own incredible voice.” – Los Angeles Times
