America’s Got Talent 2017: Deaf Jazz Singer Mandy Harvey Performs “Try”, A Song She Wrote About Losing Her Hearing At The Age Of 18

LOWLIFE MAGAZINE

In June 2017, on an episode of America’s Got Talent, 29-year-old jazz singer-songwriter Mandy Harvey performed a song entitled “Try”, a song she had written about losing her hearing altogether at the tender age of 18 and, ultimately, having to re-learn how to sing through the use of vibrations.

Despite a complete loss of hearing, which is caused by a connective tissue disorder, Mandy Harvey has released three studio albums, one of which received critical acclaim from jazz critics. She describes her condition: “I left music after I lost my hearing and then figured out how to get back into singing with muscle memory using visual tuners and trusting my pitch.”

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
