“It's one of those auditions I'll never forget. I really have a lot of respect for you. Besides that, you have a great voice. »

Howie Mandel honored her resilience and recognized that she was an inspiration.

“In life, it's hard to show up, especially after going through such trauma. The fact that you can go through this and shine like you did today is so inspiring to every human being… It was wonderful. Thanks. »

Ava Swiss said she was "grateful" to be able to share this moment.

This title evokes the comfort of God in tragedies.

"In the darkest hour when I can't breathe
Fear is on my chest, the weight of the world on me
Everything is falling apart, everything I had known
When I wonder if I'm all alone
I remember, I remember
You have always been faithful to me
I remember, I remember
Even when my eyes couldn't see you
You were always there, always there. »
