Oxford High Student Gives Performance to ‘Remember’ on ‘AGT’: Watch

Michigan has a generational reputation for pumping out cars, winning sports teams and top-notch performers. Ava Swiss hopes to be remembered as one of the state’s finest singers.

The 18-year-old from Oxford, about 30 miles north of Detroit, was giving it her all when she stopped by America’s Got Talent.

For her audition, the teenager chose something for everyone to remember her by – a cover of Lauren Daigle “Remember.” And a horror story.

The song has a deeper meaning for the young person. Last November, Swiss and her brother were among the students when a mass shooting occurred at Oxford High School. Four students lost their lives that day, seven others were injured.

“It’s been hard,” she explained. Despite the pain and trauma, “things are getting better,” she said, noting that students have since returned to school.

“When I sing it, I remember the good, I remember my community, my family, the love. And I remember that it’s all there for me. It will help me get to where I need to be.”

The inspiring performance touched everyone in the room.

“It was an amazing moment here,” enthused judge Heidi Klum.

“You really shine. It was wonderful,” added Howie Mandel.

“You took my breath away,” Sofia Vergara chimed in. “You didn’t just sing. You showed us your feelings. And you gave me goosebumps.”

As usual, Simon Cowell went last. “For me, it was one of those auditions I’ll never forget,” he claimed. On top of that, “you have a great voice.”

It was four “yes” to one more performance Remember. Watch below.
