Spirit-Filled Worship Leader Who Wowed AGT Judges Shares His Miraculous Story

I Am Second, a global storytelling organization, today released a new White Chair film featuring America's Got Talent Golden Buzzer Recipient Michael Ketterer, the singer and father of six who captured America's hearts with his soulful voice and personal story.

Ketterer performed James Bay's "Us" on last night's America's Got Talent live show, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd and moving judge Simon Cowell to tears.

"Michael, look, oh gosh, as a dad, I get why ... I can't imagine what you've done and the fact that you're on the show and you really need this, and you're a really, really special guy, and I don't know, there's something about you," said Cowell after last night's performance.

Judge Howie Mandel agreed, saying, "You deserve to be here. This is not a sob story. This is a happy story. People should be led and inspired by who you are and how you are."

In the I Am Second film released today, Michael sits with his wife Ivey to share about his experience auditioning for the reality television program and more about the journey of growing their family through adoption.

"The moment I stepped out onto the stage, it was just extremely special to get to perform a song to my children in front of the world, and I got to tell them how much I love them," said Michael in the film.

While Michael and Ivey admit they never expected to be parents, they now have six children, five adopted out of foster care.

"When we went into foster care they were like, 'What do you have to offer?'" said Ivey. "I was like, 'I have two things I can offer children. I have time, and I have love.'"

In the I Am Second White Chair film, the Ketterers share details of their sometimes difficult journey of growing their family, which included saying "yes" to the unexpected and trusting God. To watch their unique and powerful story, visit iamsecond.com.
