EXCLUSIVE: Kechi Reacts to Making Mel B Cry During Touching 'America's Got Talent' Performance
After seeking medical advice, their mother was diagnosed with stage 4 carcinoma cancer and wasn't given long to live.
"We had kind of a shocking four months with her before she passed. Which was way shorter than we were expecting," Bethany shared.
By getting on stage in front of America, We Three are getting a chance to pay tribute to the legacy their mom left behind and honor her memory.
"This is an opportunity to celebrate her and the hope that we have that we're gonna get to see her again," Josh shared.
Their deeply moving original song, "Heaven's Not Too Far Away," is written from the point of view of their late mother speaking to her children after her death, and with amazing vocals performed by Manny and Bethany, the song brought many in the audience to tears.
Their father was watching from the wings offstage with host Tyra Banks, and neither of them were able to keep back their emotions as the band performed the heartbreaking tune.
When it came time to get feedback from the judges, the band received universal praise, especially from Mel B.
"I lost my father over a year ago to cancer, so I felt like that song was just meant for me and my dad was singing that to me," the former Spice Girls star shared, as she openly cried. "So I just felt it, I'm shaking. It's really, really good."
Mel B later gave them a 'yes' vote while choking back tears, and encouraged the group with a heartfelt "well done" as they walked off stage after getting voted through to the next round.
Before the show cut to a commercial break, a shaken Mel B asked for a few moments to compose herself in private and walked out of the auditorium.
