A 10-year-old girl diagnosed with autism will melt your heart with her beautiful rendition of “Hallelujah” from Leonard Cohen.
Kaylee Rodgers, a student at the Killard House School in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland, dazzled audiences during the Christmas choir by performing an alternative version of the song, written by Christian rock band Cloverton. Her performance has been shared around the world!
Colin Millar, principal of the school explained that Kaylee was very shy when she arrived at school. Therefore, seeing her standing in front of an audience and doing such a performance is proof that she has put a lot of effort into it to get to that point.
Tracy Rodgers, Kaylee’s mother, told the BBC about her daughter’s incredible talent while emphasizing the fabulous work of her singing teacher who gave her confidence: “She always loved singing, but it was only when she entered the Killard House School that she really got into it. Her teacher loves her confidence, he was great with her. “
