By activating the renowned golden buzzer on “America’s Got Talent,” an act is instantly propelled to the ‘live show’ phase of the competition. In June 2022, Vergara disclosed that she was compelled to press the button for the groundbreaking group.
“It’s just something that happens to you, and you feel goosebumps and you feel a connection with that person. And then, it happened to me,” she expressed.
For The Mayyas, this transcends mere wish fulfillment; it signifies a triumph for women universally. “You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy. We have been navigating a daily struggle in Lebanon amid inflation, economic crisis, the blast [referring to the colossal 2020 Beirut Explosion that inflicted extensive damage on Lebanon’s capital and reverberated across several European countries], and so much more,” the group shared with People.
“We can work harder, we can fight harder, we can adapt to everything happening to us. We are alive; we shouldn’t take it [for] granted, and we can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before we decide to be happy,” they added.
The acclaimed actress and judge expressed her enthusiasm to traverse this path to success alongside them. “I would be so honored to empower you even more in this journey because you deserve it, and I want to be part of this,” she declared.
“Sofía always represented, for us, the image of a strong, beautiful woman,” the group stated. “And this is what Mayyas is all about: women [and] women empowerment. Receiving the Golden Buzzer from her was an absolute honor. We hope we won’t let her down in the next rounds
