By Shari Weiss



The American Military Spouses Choir gave an incredibly moving performance on Tuesday’s “America’s Got Talent.”

The group, which formed last year, is comprised of the wives of active-duty soldiers, and uses music therapy to help veterans suffering from brain injuries and PTSD.

But the panel and the audience weren’t simply being courteous with their standing ovation, as the singers — ranging in age from 20-56 — showed off gorgeous voices on “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”

Howie Mandel told the performers, “It’s so uplifting and so inspirational and so wonderful that you’re doing this and that you’re healing people with this and entertaining people with this that I was just overjoyed to sit here and listen to you.”

Mel B agreed, saying, “I think that’s exactly what you’ve done for us today, lifted up the entire room.”

Heidi Klum said the song choice was “perfect,” and confessed, “It was hard to not start crying.”

And Howard Stern noted, “You remind me how lucky we are to live in this country and have men and women who serve,” going on to especially commend the “fantastic” soloists.

“This whole group came together and we discovered some great talent,” continued the radio host, adding, “We soared with you.”
