'You Say' Violin Cover From AGT Contestant Tyler Butler-Figueroa

11-year-old violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa performs a chilling rendition of Lauren Daigle’s ‘You Say.’


We first met this talented young man when he auditioned for America’s Got Talent. The whole world melted when they heard his touching backstory and watched his incredible performance.

Tyler started to play the violin at age 7, after nearly losing his life to cancer. His treatments caused him to lose his hair and he immediately became a target for bullies. But music, and the violin, gave Tyler an outlet and he started to come out of his shell.

His performance of ‘Stronger’ from Kelly Clarkson led judge Simon Cowell to press the golden buzzer. What some people may not know is that Tyler is a Christian. He has performed many gospel covers, but this performance might be my absolute favorite.

“I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I'm not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low
Remind me once again just who I am because I need to know”

‘You Say’ garnered worldwide attention and singer Lauren Daigle even won a 2019 Grammy Award for the powerful song. The poignant lyrics serve as a reminder that when we feel small, God can lift us to greater heights.

What a blessing to see this young man use his talents to give glory to the Lord. What a true inspiration and role model for so many around the world.
