'America's Got Talent': Sofia Vergara Gets Emotional Over Singer's Golden Buzzer-Worthy Performance
Sofia Vergara was feeling particularly moved on Tuesday's, as the eighth night of auditions brought out a stunning Brazilian singer who wowed the judges with his voice.When Gabriel Henrique hit the stage halfway through Tuesday's show, Vergara and her fellow judges — Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel — were won over by his smile and his affable personality.Gabriel was joined on stage by a translator, as he doesn't speak a great deal of English, but his winning charm shined through any language barriers that may have existed before he even sang a note."[This is] my first time here in the United States," Gabriel shared, via his translator, «and I'm just realizing a dream to be here to sing for you guys.»While he seemed initially nervous, and needed a few moments to psyche himself up on stage, when Gabriel began his performance, the power of his voice was immediately evident. The hopeful belted out a cover of «Run to You» by Whitney Houston and showcased his incredible ability to hit some impressive high notes.Heidi was the first to shower him with praise, declaring, «If Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey had a baby, it would be Gabriel.»«I did not expect that voice to come out of you,» Howie shared.
