“America’s Got Talent” semifinalist Amanda Mammana will be singing at CT Cityfest with Andrew Palau and other Christian artists.
The 19-year-old rising artist has inspired millions with her story. Amanda has a speech impediment and a musical gift. It was when she sings that her stutters stop. During her performance in “America’s Got Talent,” she received a standing ovation.
“I contemplated stopping music because I couldn’t communicate freely,” she said. “… I don’t stutter when I sing. It sparked a passion to say what I want to say in music.”
This week, Amanda was eliminated from the show right before the finals. However, the graduate of Christian Heritage School in Trumbull, Connecticut will be performing this weekend alongside prominent Christian personalities.
Amanda will be performing at CT Cityfest in Bridgeport alongside TobyMac, Lecrae, We Are Messengers, and other Christian artists. Over 175 churches, organizations, and companies are taking part in this event.
“Sharing about her struggle with a speech impediment and the freedom she has found in music, Mammana stunned the crowd, brought the judges to their feet, and caused a buzz throughout the Internet in the days following,” the Luis Palau Association said in a news release.
The Christian Heritage School also posted on their Facebook page about Amanda and how her God-given gifts are being used by her for His glory.
“[She] showed the world that obstacles can be overcome, that beauty can come from struggle, and that gifts from the Lord will always be unwrapped and used for His glory by those who love Him.”
They also expressed their support for the rising star.
“Amanda, thank you for shining your light, lifting your voice, and walking in His confidence. Your journey has just begun, and we walk this path with you,” the school’s post said. “We are so proud of you and excited to see you this Sunday evening at CT CityFest.”
