America’s Got Talent judges Howie Mandel, Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell were visibly moved when Avery Dixon told them about his life struggles.
21-year-old Dixon experienced trouble in school mainly because of his appearance and unique way of speaking.
All consequences of him being born premature.
“At the time I picked up the saxophone, I was getting having trouble in elementary school. My voice sounded a little different and I looked a little bit different too. My elementary school nickname was Hammerhead because I had these knots on my head because I’m premature.”
“I was born at one pound and eight ounces. And my vocal cords don’t close all the way so, it made my voice sound really airy. Students were so negative about my voice — one called me frog and she’d get the class in on the joke. They were relentless. I was in such a dark place,” he told the judges.
Dixon cannot stop crying as his mom runs out to hug him. Crews himself hugus Dixon telling him he’s always got his back.
And this is what it’s all about. There is hope. Spread the love.
