We are so excited to announce that Mandy Harvey will be performing and sharing her story at our Spring Fundraiser in March of 2019!
Mandy Harvey is an award-winning singer, songwriter, and inspirational speaker who lost her residual hearing at the age of nineteen. Mandy was born with near perfect pitch and with encouragement, she picked music back up and learned to trust her pitch with the help of visual tuners and by feeling the rhythm through vibrations to get her timing. By 2008, she was performing at jazz clubs all around Colorado.
Mandy tours the world performing her original music and presenting her inspirational story of never giving up and continuing to try – she calls these messages Wisdom For Life. She is best known as the 2017 America’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer winner! She wowed the audience with her original songs, each played on a Kala ukulele.
Not content to rest on her burgeoning recording career, her live performances, and her inspirational speaking, Mandy just released her first book titled; Sensing The Rhythm, Finding My Voice In a World Without Sound published by Howard Books/Simon & Schuster, with a message of helping others to realize their dreams and pursue their hopes. As an Ambassador for No Barriers USA, she travels the country to heighten awareness, break down blocks, challenge stereotypes, and lead the charge toward a brighter future for all.
Mandy will be gracing the Faith Chapel stage on March 22nd, 2019 at 7pm. You will hear a little bit about the mission of IDEA and also hear Mandy Harvey sing and share her story. All the proceeds of this fundraiser will go directly to IDEA in furthering our mission to provide education and vocational skills training to the deaf community in the Philippines.
