This.Is.So.Powerful. 'You Matter' Brandon Leake (AGT semifinals)
This may have already been posted. Yes, it's AGT semifinals, but no -- it's way more than that. Honestly. Give a listen. You'll be glad you did.
With Americas Got Talent just three weeks away from crowning a winner, Stockton spoken-word poet Brandon Leake has advanced to the semifinals after Tuesdays incredible performance and promises his next piece will be far better.
Leake, judge Howie Mandels Golden Buzzer winner, gave a powerful spoken-word performance about his Black mothers fear of him becoming Americas next most popular hashtag every time he leaves home amid protests over police brutality and racism.
Ive never been more moved in my life on this show by any other act, Mandel said after Tuesday nights performance. We need you on this show. We need you in this world. You matter.
Watched both his performances...now I need to wipe my eyes.
That was truly powerful, he is a shining star whose voice needs to be heard.
Hes just wonderful. I love spoken word anyway and he does the art proud.
DU. He sure does the art proud.
