America's Got Talent 2019 Detroit Youth Choir
The young choir from Detroit perform an unexpected rendition of “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and earn a well-deserved Golden Buzzer from Michigan’s own Terry Crews!
The choir serves kids between the ages the ages of 8-18. The director, Anthony White, is committed to helping at risk kids. He’s been director for over 21 years. Simon loves choirs, as we know. I like them too, but not in competitions like this. They dance and rap. Which I was not expecting. But you know. It’s a choir. The rapping was better than the solo singing. Howie says, ‘This was your moment. I love you all.” Julianne says, “You guys came together and created something…I love it.” OK A GOLDEN BUZZER IS COMING! Simon thinks they could win (no). OK it’s Terry. He interrupts the voting. He’s practically crying. He identifies with them. He’s from Flint. So that makes sense that HE CHOOSES THEM AS HIS GOLDEN BUZZER. Terry says, all it takes is one person to believe in one young man or woman. Then Terry hits the buzzer. That means the group goes straight through to the live shows.
Citylab Detroit kicks off with a Motown Medley from the Detroit Youth Choir.

Cecilia Gagnier-Reynolds This is just awesome. The Detroit Youth Choir is well known here in the Detroit area, they are beaucoup talented. Terry Crews you are a very cool and special guy with a big heart! Love you from all the way from back home in Michigan!
Roger Gilmore I thought maybe this show would decline this year but the new judges are awesome and Terry crews has saved the show. This was inspirational
This is now becoming far too predictable. The last act must now get the golden buzzer. REALLY???? Yes, they were very good, yes they were very entertaining. BUT golden buzzer worthy???? NO!!!!! BTW Terry Crews is a wonderful ACTOR
I love the story surrounding this choir and where they’ve come from and the things they’ve overcome, but I’m more impressed that Lauren Daigle is being played in the background!!! Thank you for putting Christian music on a main stream stage!!! Way to go, AGT!
