How ‘America’s Got Talent’ Standout, Deaf Singer Mandy Harvey, ‘Feels’ The Music | CPR

The singer, who moved from Colorado to Florida, learned how to “feel” the music, as she explained to Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner in 2010. “I’ll feel and concentrate the drums through the floor, through my feet and then the bass through your chest. And then if a saxophone player is next to me then it will be on my arm. So you just designate different parts of your body so you can concentrate on who’s playing what and when,” she said.
