“I loved it a lot. Actually, I love the lines theres. ‘Dreams begin in the dark.’ It’s so inspirational, it’s so deep, it’s so meaningful,” Judge Anggun said.

Judge David Foster pointed out how Galit’s dreams actually started in his mind: “It’s a blank page and you turn it in to something. I can guarantee you that every single one of this audience watching you couldn’t wait what was going to happen in the next second. Congratulations.”

Galit received the Golden Buzzer press of hosts Alan Wong and Justin Bratton when he auditioned at the show.
