Girl With Autism Performs The Iconic Hit "Hallelujah," And Her Rendition Gets Over 7 Million Views On YouTube
Children with disabilities are just like us, and their special needs should not be an obstacle to enjoy life and spend time with others kids. Ten-year-old Kaylee Rogers was diagnosed with autism at a young age, but you wouldn't be able to guess about her unique condition when she takes the stage.
Kaylee Rogers and her story
Just because a person has autism, it doesn't mean he or she has a lack of communication skills and becomes a loner for their entire life. People with autism may feel a bit uncomfortable in certain social situations, but with the right approach, their condition may get better.
Kaylee Rogers was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Today, Kaylee is 10, and she is a student at the Killard House School, the school for children with special needs.
Kaylee likes studying. Her favorite school discipline is singing. When her music teacher, Lloyd Scate, discovered her vocal skills, he encouraged Kaylee to develop in this direction.
Her voice is absolutely fantastic, she's just fantastic. We work as a team. Anytime I play the piano, she sings.
Today, Rogers is a member of the school choir. Her new hobby helped the girl to find many new friends. She is not afraid to communicate with others, and her teacher says the girl has a good background to become a great singer someday.
A mesmerizing rendition of "Hallelujah"
The choir often does renditions of classic songs. Last time, they decided to make a rendition of the iconic song "Hallelujah." They reworked the song and shared it on YouTube.
The choir’s performance was so breathtaking that it immediately went viral and has been watched by over seven million viewers. You can listen to this mesmerizing rendition in the video below.
After this incredible performance, 10-year-old Kaylee became a real star. The Belfast Telegraph even asked the talented kid for an interview. Kaylee told the magazine:
I wasn't nervous at all, I just love doing it. It makes me feel happy that I'm doing it for everyone, they came over and they had a lot of happy tears.
Thank you, Kaylee, for your beautiful and powerful performance. We wish you to develop your talent and reach the highest goals, and of course, to rejoice us with your incredible singing.
