Spoken Word Poet – He’s a “spoken word” poet with a spiritual and religious message. He just left a teaching job. And now he’s a college counselor. He was an angry teen, which turned him into a writer. Brandon’s new baby is only 14 days old. Brandon claims he will be the first spoken word artist on AGT. Simon is skeptical. Tonight’s poem is an ode to his sister. Oh. The twist is that she died as a baby. His presentation is very emotional. Sofia confesses that her brother passed away the same year as his sister. Simon calls it “an amazing tribute.” Eh. Anyone who has heard a spoken word performance, what he did was pretty typical. Howie is so moved that he hits his Golden Buzzer. The judges all enter the stage. Elbow bumps all around!
