Father Of 6 Earns Simon's Golden Buzzer

Michael Ketterer is a pediatric mental health nurse and father of 6. Of his 6 children, 5 of them were adopted and Michael wants them all to know that they are in a safe place where they are free to dream.


Today, he's leading by example and following his own dream of singing on the big stage. Just watch as he nervously steps up to the microphone on America's Got Talent. Simon can immediately sense his nerves, but this loving father has already touched the hearts of the judges before he even started singing. But this incredible father but all the nerves to the side as he belted out an incredible rendition of the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody."

Michael truly put his heart and soul into this performance and it all comes across in his voice. You can tell that his mind was reeling with all kinds of emotion when he received a standing ovation from the judges and audience. But when Simon reached over and pushed that coveted golden buzzer, joy and excitement spread throughout the father. That's when his children all came running out onto the stage to give their dad a well-deserved hug.

I'm so glad that Michael is headed straight for the live shows and I just know his next performance is going to be even better than the first.
