Try, by Mandy Harvey

Grab a box of tissues and be prepared to tear up at the beauty of this extraordinary performance. Mandy Harvey, 29, lost her hearing as a teenager. She had been a singer before this loss, and gave up music for a while. But then she found the inspiration she needed to move through this tragedy and aspire to something greater. Through vulnerability, she found strength, and a way to move forward. Her performance is beautiful and her story is heartwarming…  But above all, her message is universal, and a true inspiration. Enjoy.
