Last night (6/11) on AGT there were many impressive performances but none that brought us to tears like the one from Tyler Butler Figuero. The young man told his story of being bullied because he has leukimia and took up playing the violin to help deal with the kids who bullied him after he lost his hair due to chemotherapy. "When I play the violin, it helps me forget about all the bad stuff," he said. "I just didn't want to be the kid with cancer. So now I'm the kid who plays the violin." and that he did last night VERY WELL with an energetic performance of Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger" and Simon Cowell was clearly impressed addressing young Tyler "I can tell you one thing--most people are bullied because they're better than the people who bully them. And I think you have such an amazing talent, such a personality, and I would like to say something on your behalf to the bullies." Then Cowell reaches to HIT THE GOLDEN BUZZER and now I am crying AGAIN!!
Watch this remarkable young man's performance below and Tyler we think you are an AMAZING young man!!!
