Something special happened in Northern Ireland
If you think that people affecting by autism can’t excel, you need to think again… and again.
Kaylee Rodgers, a 10-year-old girl from Northern Ireland, Donaghadee, has amazed the entire world with her fantastic performance at the school’s Christmas show when she sang the choirs’ version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
Kaylee suffers from autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), but apparently, her amazing voice is helping her to gain confidence.
Colin Millar, the principal of Killard House, commented
“For a child who came in P4 and wouldn’t really talk, wouldn’t really read out in class, to stand and perform in front of an audience is amazing. It takes a lot of effort on Kaylee’s part.”
We are speechless. Well done Kaylee!
