The choir auditioned on the 14th season of America's Got Talent, where Cowell, Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union, Howie Mandel, and host Terry Crews follows in their talent search, showcasing unique performers from across the country in the United States - and of course, now from South Africa.

Landers, a 27-year-old musician from Huntsville, Ala., initially tried to perform Al Green's "Let's Stay Together".

Schmitt began their performace by saying they want the world to know that just because you were born into poverty, doesn't mean you are poverty. I wouldn't. So you want to come back this afternoon with another song?

"I'm just wondering whether we should just come up with a better song, because your problem is that you don't take risks", Cowell said.

"Lamont, I wouldn't shrug to that. It's not me, it's you", Cowell warned.

After Landers shrugged off Cowell's note, the producer said, "I think you should come back later 'cause right now we're not understanding each other".

In a odd twist of events, Lamont beckoned the crowd to support him, by asking: "What do you guys think?"

It seemed as if the break, and the rethink was exactly what Lamont needed, as he performed Robyn's Dancing on my Own to the judges, spawning huge applause from the audience.

Their soulful performance won the hearts of all of the judges on the globally-popular show, and stirred the audience into a standing ovation.

You showcased the beauty you represent and you are giving so much hope. "I think the door has just opened for you here", Cowell said. So I don't think we can judge you properly on this.
