CALIFORNIA - They were previously known as Justin Bieber's back up performers, but now a Filipino-American singing group is thriving on its own and showing America their talent.

Boy band "Legaci" impressed the judges at America's Got Talent Week 4 Auditions, garnering four 'yesses' from Heidi Klum, Howard Stern, Howie Mendel and Mel B.

"Legaci" is composed of Chris Abad, Jason Atencion, Micah Tolentino and Del Lazaro — all tech industry professionals from San Francisco.

Gary Valenciano's son Gab is also a contestant this year on America's Got Talent.

The show's grand prize winner will receive $1 million.

Both Valenciano and Legaci face stiff competition from a talented pool of contestants including Samoan singing soldier Paul Leti, whose impressive cover of Rihanna's "Stay" went viral.

The top-rated summer series continue its weekly televised auditions for its 9th season contestants.

Legaci's slightly awkward interview before they performed last week almost ruined it but their talents saved the day with Stern even calling their voices "God-like".

Legaci has a devoted fan base. Their videos have garnered almost 25 million views.

Although they did not win last year on "X Factor" and "The Winner Is," fans of Legaci are hoping that this year, they'll make it on America's Got talent.
