Jennie Beverly remembers the moment the American Military Spouses Choir stepped onto the stage to audition for the TV show “America’s Got Talent” in Chicago.

“As soon as we announced who we were, the people were chanting ‘USA’ and all of this, and it was just a mind-blowing experience to feel all of the joy, the pride, the happiness that people felt,” Beverly said.

The crowd hadn’t even heard the group sing a note yet.

“It just made us very emotional and we got a standing ovation after the audition and we went straight through,” Beverly said.

Beverly, a 27-year-old mother of two, is married to Staff Sgt. Byron Beverly, an MV-22 Osprey aviation mechanic at Marine Medium Tiltrotor Training Squadron 204 at New River.

Her husband is an 11-year Marine who has spent much of his career at Cherry Point before a recent transfer.

He said he and the couple’s two young children have been sitting around the television to watch each performance.
