The courageous Shooting star

Sometimes viewing "America's Got Talent" is better for watching remarkable courage than extraordinary performances. With her breathtaking performance of Lauren Daigle's "Remember," eighteen-year-old Ava Swiss demonstrated talent and bravery on America's Got talent.

The shooting survivor is brave due to the incident

It takes courage to perform on a big platform like America's Got Talent. Swiss had the singing ability and theatrical flair to leave a lasting impact. But the motivation behind her song selection made it even more potent. Swiss explained to judge Simon Cowell that she picked this song since she and her brother took part in the Oxford school shooting on November 30. "Four of our pupils passed away, while seven others, including a teacher, were hurt."

Now shooting survival took a courageous step to perform at America Got Talent. 

One person stated

"Hello, fellow Oxford High School student. I'll be replaying this performance for years to come. It was incredible and breathtakingly gorgeous, giving me goosebumps. I cried a lot, but it also gave me a lot of strength. It was something I didn't know I needed. I'm incredibly proud of our neighborhood and Ava for sharing her voice with the world and easing the pain of our healing process. Keep fighting, Oxford.
