“Flawless powerhouse voice Ava, touching song. #AGT,” one fan tweeted.

It’s no secret that music really does have the power to heal. Fans have seen it time and time again on the America’s Got Talent stage, where people have used music to overcome life’s obstacles and shine through their talent. Personalities like Avery Dixon and Amanda Mammana have certainly struck a chord with judges and audiences alike this season, and it looks like Ava Swiss is now poised to join their ranks.

Ava Swiss introduced herself to the judges, after which Simon Cowell commented that “Ava Swiss” was a cool name. She explained that her full name is Ava Swieczkowski, but “Swiss” is shorter. A native of Oxford, Michigan, the Swiss national is 18 and a senior at Oxford High School. Swiss explained that she chose to sing Lauren Daigle’s “Remember” for her performance because she and her brother were present at the Oxford School filming on November 30, 2021.

She added that they lost four students and injured seven others. She explained that life has been tough since then and although she and her brother have vowed never to go to school again, they have been attending the same one for two months and things are slowly getting better. Swiss agreed with Cowell that music was therapy for her and allows her to remember all the good that is there. Simon added that they cheered her on before wishing her luck.

But it looks like Swiss didn’t need any luck as she wowed the judges and audiences with her voice. Howie Mandel explained that breaking through the trauma and emerging was not easy, but Swiss was here on stage and she shone. He called it “inspirational.” Heidi also praised her, while Sofia Vergara noted that she not only sings, but shows them her feelings. Simon Cowell remarked that she was “brave” and that this was an audition he would never forget. The judges gave Swiss the four yeses she needed to advance. Fans also took to Twitter to express their support. “Flawless powerhouse voice Ava, touching song. #AGT,” one fan tweeted. “I literally have chills from this performance! Ava you are amazing and you will go so far <3 #AGT," added one fan. "Ava Swiss could be the next Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood. What a beautiful voice!! #AGT,” noted another. “I think a star was born at @AGT tonight. Wow,” tweeted another. "This girl has a solid voice!! Singing like that and surviving such a tragedy is a survivor, so more power to her!!! #AGT,” said one fan.
