AGT contestant Ava Swiss shares Oxford school shooting survival story

As Ava made her debut on the AGT stage, the audience greeted her with rousing ovation. Her last name was maintained as Swiss because it was shorter, cooler, and simpler to pronounce even though her real name is Ava Swieczkowski. She had a powerful survival tale hidden behind her charming demeanour, which she conveyed at her audition.

The Oxford, Michigan resident told her brother about how she survived the Oxford School Shooting. She talked up about the traumatic incident on stage as she explained why she chose the song Remember by Lauren Daigle.

At Oxford High School in Oxford, Michigan, a shooting spree on November 30, 2021, left four students dead and seven others injured, including a teacher. Ethan Crumbley, a sophomore at the age of 15, was detained and accused of 24 offences, including terrorism and murder.

The participant, an Oxford High School senior, and her brother were unable to attend classes for a considerable amount of time as they dealt with the situation. Although Ava acknowledged that it was difficult, “things have improved” now that both of the siblings have been enrolled in school for more than two months.

The judges’ response to her moving performance was simply “wonderful.” She was able to “break through that and shine” as an inspiration, Howie Mandel continued, adding that it was difficult to perform after a horrible experience. The judges then praised her for having the fortitude to recover from tragedy.
