Last night on America's Got Talent, the show was blessed with a very special group of women with a very special talent: The American Military Spouse's Choir. The 35-woman group sang "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" on the show, and although their performance will, without question, send chills throughout your body, it's their stories and their mission that resonates most. The group regularly performs, using their music as a form of therapy for soldiers suffering from traumatic brain injury or PTSD. These women are an inspiration like no other, and their heartbreaking stories -- and their amazing sisterhood -- will no doubt stay with you forever.
Check out their performance:
I honestly don't know how these women do it. I have the utmost respect for them not only for being able to live a life where every day contains gut-wrenching uncertainty, but for using their experience for a good and really serious cause. So grateful for their husbands, and their husbands must be so incredibly grateful for the uplifting work their doing. I'm truly in awe. (And in case you were wondering, yes, they did make it to the next round.)
Congrats, ladies. Thank you so much for using your painful experiences to help others. Doesn't get much more inspiring than this.
How cool is this?
