Mandy Harvey says
Mandy Harvey is a deaf American singer-songwriter. As a vocal music education major at Colorado State University, Harvey lost her residual hearing in 2006–2007 at age eighteen because of a neurological disorder. She left her program of study but returned to music in 2008 and has been performing ever since.

Harvey’s music has begun to attract attention around the world, adding to her positive message of hope, dreams, and belief. CNN’s Great Big Story captured her life on video and received over six million hits on social media. Burt’s Bees, a manufacturer of natural personal care products, signed her up for their remarkable women campaign, while NBC’s Nightly News profiled her. She has started performing at prestigious clubs, concert stages, and music festivals around the country.

Not content to rest on her burgeoning recording career, her live performances, and her motivational speaking, Harvey is writing her first book and helping others to realize their dreams and pursue their hopes. As a spokesperson for No Barriers USA and Invisible Disabilities Association, she travels across the country to heighten awareness, break down blocks, challenge stereotypes, and lead the charge toward a brighter future for all.

While her initial dream of becoming a choir director has died, the music is still alive and well within her. Although her hearing loss is profound, her timing, pitch, and passion are perfect. With support from friends, family, and her faith, Harvey continues to find joy in music.
