AGT Singer With Speech Impediment Gives Glory to God: ‘By The Grace of God, I Found That I Don’t Stutter When I Sing’
By Movieguide® Staff
Despite a speech impediment, 19-year-old AMERICA’S GOT TALENT finalist Amanda Mammana is singing boldly to the glory of God.
At a recent Andrew Palau evangelistic outreach event, Mammana explained how she relies on her faith in God despite her difficulty with everyday communication.
“For about 10 years now, I’ve had a stutter, and it’s definitely something that has caused me to shy away and to not believe in myself,” Mammana said. “But by the grace of God, I found that I don’t stutter when I sing.”
“I’ve been able to take that and to let that just be a great way to spread the Gospel,” she added.
Mammana made a run on AGT over the summer and gave the glory to God for her success on the show.
“The Holy Spirit just took over and He put a fire inside of me,” she said, “All Glory to God.”
Mammana hopes that she can encourage others to place their identity in Christ and have the courage to defy others’ judgment and “lies straight from the devil.”
“But it’s amazing that we have a God that is so much stronger, and He’s given us the power to overcome anything that comes our way,” she explained.
Mammana wowed judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Sofia Vergara, who were all amazed by her courage.
Mandel said: “I believe you’re moving millions of people at home. I just want to say, Thank you.”
Mammana recently exited the show last week but continues to pursue her career as a singer-songwriter.
