Taking to the America's Got Talent stage, homeless chorale group Voices of our City Choir sang their hearts out with a truly stunning cover of Ben E. King's song, 'Stand By Me.'

Blowing the show's judges away with their powerfully emotional vocals, there wasn't a dry eye in the room.

Judge Kenan Thompson - who was filling in for Simon Cowell after he broke his back - told the choir: "I mean, it was incredible. I don’t know if you get a kick out of making people cry their eyes out, but that’s what you guys do every time you hit the stage.

While Sofia Vergara added: "I love what you have done with this choir. It’s unbelievable. It brings hope. It brings love so much that we need right now. It makes me have chills every time you guys sing."
