Saxophone player Avery Dixon is showing us all why we should only allow God to define us rather than the voices of others. The teen, who has been bullied for his looks, is now a golden buzzer winner.
While being interviewed, Avery Dixon shares that it was not his choice to audition because he did not believe that he was very good. His mom signed him up to audition for America's Got Talent and pushed him to try it.
There is a sweet moment before he goes on stage when his mom tells Avery, "You worked hard for this and you deserve to be here." Her encouragement of her son is inspiring.
As Avery Dixon speaks with the judges, he is kind and witty. The teen is from Atlanta, Georgia. Avery shares that he got into playing the saxophone because his voice was different and his looks and his nickname in elementary school was "hammerhead" since he was born prematurely and has knots on his head.

"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." Romans 12:21
