Gospel Singer’s Emotional Performance Leaves America’s Got Talent Judge in Tears

Following an Inspiring Performance, a Gospel Singer Reduces Judge Simon Cowell to Tears on America’s Got Talent

Ben Waites, a 33-year-old Gospel singer from Nashville, had an uplifting performance on America’s Got Talent, which caused judge Sofia Vergara to start crying.

Waites, a vocal teacher and Southern Gospel performer, covered Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” on a Tuesday episode of AGT. Waites said the song is about hope.

“I believe that the song’s message may speak to everybody, regardless of their age, race, or origin. Waites, who was born with the disease Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), told the judges that the song may convey a message of hope. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, AMC is a disorder that results in “many joint contractures (or stiffness)”.

Waites received applause and a standing ovation from the audience after his performance. Vergara, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all stood to applaud Waites along with the other two judges.

You definitely have a lot of feelings, and I was feeling them as well, but I’m focused on Sofia. The commentary on Waites’ performance began with Klum joking that Sofia was currently crying herself to sleep.

Sofia also doesn’t cry, Cowell continued.

The performance’s impact was then acknowledged by Vergara herself.

“I enjoyed it because, although it’s a lovely song, you made it your own, and that made it special, you know? It was unique, Vergara claimed.

The performance was subsequently praised by Klum and Cowell, who even referred to it as a “fantastic audition.” “This is a moment,” he continued.

The decision to keep Waites in the competition was then made by the judges. Three people said yes to Waite.

Waites called his development on the show “a God thing” in an interview with The Baptist Press earlier this week on his AGT experience.

When he was a college student, Waites tried out for AGT but was not chosen. He had not given the show another thought after that. That is, up until the show’s producers asked him to try out for the show after seeing a popular TikTok video of him performing in Louisiana.

Waites remarked,

“I had not even considered doing something like this since my undergraduate days, but God’s going to use this and I didn’t need to pass up this opportunity.
“Throughout my entire career, everything I’ve done has been mainly focused on serving Christ and sharing God’s love with as many people as I can. I saw this as a chance to reach many individuals that I probably couldn’t have done on my own,” he continued.

“I’m carrying a lot of weight over it, but not in the sense that I’m extremely anxious or concerned about succeeding. That material is irrelevant to me. The proper and successful presentation of the Gospel of Christ through this opportunity is what I’m most concerned with. It’s crucial that you understand what I’m saying.
