TRIUMPH OVER BULLIES
BEAUTIFUL THINGS ARE STILL HAPPENING OUT THERE
Events and happenings like this keep me going.
Amanda came from the Dominican Republic with her parents at an early age.
As a family, they made it through!
Music helped her … and she made it to this national stage.
Enjoy her performance!!
Amanda Mena, a 15-year-old who had been bullied at school for not knowing English as a child, soared on Tuesday night’s, June 19, “America’s Got Talent.”
Mena belted a version of Aretha Franklin’s classic “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” that brought the house down and left the celebrity judges searching for words.
“My gosh, where do I start? That was just incredible,” said judge Mel B. “I got goose pimples all over. I love you, I love your voice, and this is what I’m going to say to all those bullies.”
Mel B then pressed the show’s Golden Buzzer, sending Mena directly on to the show’s live rounds.
“Do you know what you have, Amanda?” asked judge Simon Cowell.
“You have genuinely natural soul. You really, really do. I mean, that’s not an easy song to sing. This is an audition we’re going to remember for a long time, Amanda.”
