Knoxville musician Michael Ketterer delivered a fantastic cover of “To Love Somebody” by the Bee Gees for the judges of America’s Got Talent. Ketterer is a pediatric mental health nurse who has six children. He spoke about having one daughter with his wife but that complications made it difficult to have more.
He then talked about how they adopted three boys after their daughter dreamt about having them join the family. He said the most rewarding thing is providing his kids with a place to dream.
Simon Cowell asked if it is about being technical or relevant. Simon said that for him it is about being real. Simon said that sometimes action speak louder than words. Simon then gave Ketterer his golden buzzer.
Mel B said that Ketterer sang from his soul and said that it was impressive. Howie Mandel said that he just wants to be a fraction of the human being that he believes Ketterer is. Howie called him great performer and a star human being. Heidi Klum said that she was blown away.
He moved from Knoxville to California in 2014, according to Ketterer’s bio on Influence Music’s website. While in Knoxville, he was a part of Knoxville Christian music group United Pursuit.
