Benjamin Yonattan from "America's Got Talent 2015" is one of the Top 36 acts in Season 10 of the NBC talent competition series.

14-year-old dancer Benjamin Yonattan was born in Guatemala and adopted at age four by his family from Kalamazoo, Michigan. He discovered his love of dance growing up with epidermolysis bullosa, a rare genetic skin condition that prevented him from playing contact sports or engaging in other typical childhood activities. As Ben's training progressed, he began to lose his

vision to retinal dystrophy but continued to perform, re-learning to balance and move through the darkness, and using special glasses to widen his diminishing field of vision.

The youngest of 13 siblings, Ben believes dance can connect people of all ages and backgrounds, and looks to be an example of perseverance, passion, faith and excellence to others who are facing life-changing challenges.
