Another judge Howie Mandel said the choir was his favourite.

“For me, this is my favourite choir that’s ever been on AGT,” he said.

Their chilling performance resulted in a standing ovation from the audience and judges.

New judge Heidi Klum said: “This was my first time with you guys and I loved it. I love how vibrant you are, inside and out.”

Howie further said they were singing like professionals.
