We lived thousands of miles away and we had no idea who they were.”Kim said. “And when Beckham finished heart transplant surgery, I wasn’t allowed to hold him. I could just pat his head. And when I played it, the first thing I did was sing that song.He added. “We didn’t know each other. And the last song I sang to say goodbye to Jake was ‘For Good’.”Holi added.

So this is the first time in my life that I feel a connection to this kind of music, and it was probably the most magical moment I’ve seen on AGT.”The jury member accepted.
“I have no words. To be honest, I just want to go over there and hug all three of you. What strong women, what a strong story. That was so powerful”, Klum added, tears streaming down her face. Vergara also praised the candidates in her verdict.

That was really special, thank you”The actress gave her opinion. “What you did was very brave. The connection of this song that unites all three is remarkable. And let me tell you this: what you guys did will make a difference. I promise really go”Simon finished. Watch:
