Amanda Mena - Quarter Finals
Amanda Mena, 15 years old at the time of her audition, captured Mel B's heart and the Golden Buzzer this 2018 season by singing "Natural Woman" with what Howie Mandel referred to as a "supernatural talent." Amanda kept her voice to herself for most of her childhood, fearing ridicule from her peers. With encouragement from her mother, she overcame her fears and has not stopped singing since. At 11, she ventured into live showcases and competitions and even went on to win a national Spanish-language singing competition. Her biggest goal is to create music that is internationally adored and live out the American dream for herself and her entire family.
