“A blind young girl sits at the piano in front of a skeptical Simon Cowell.”

Singing in front of an audience is incredibly courageous, whether you’re talented or not. Doing it in front of an entire nation on television is incredibly brave.

But that’s exactly what 17-year-old Putri Ariani did, and she did it in front of a skeptical Simon Cowell…

America’s Got Talent is one of the biggest television shows in the world, and many Americans dream of making it in front of the judges, including Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and, of course, Simon Cowell.

She was born blind.

Putri Ariani, a 17-year-old from Indonesia, was born blind, but she has no intention of letting that hold her back.

“I don’t give up because I know I am unbeatable, capable, brave, and spectacular. I believe that everyone has potential,” Putri said, according to Hollywoodlife.

And when she took the stage in front of a skeptical Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent, she proved it.

Warm applause.

In the clip below, we see a shy 17-year-old girl sit down at the piano and start playing.

But as soon as the song begins, the entire audience is blown away and gives the 17-year-old blind girl a standing ovation.

Even the judges are astonished when Putri performs the song she wrote herself, “Loneliness.” When she finishes singing, Simon Cowell requests one more song, and Putri delivers an incredible rendition of Elton John’s “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word.” Below, you can watch the entire performance

What incredible talent, she will go far in the world!
