Autistic Girl’s Performance Receives Worldwide Praise

Kaylee Rodgers, a 10-year-old autistic girl from North Ireland, amazed people from across the globe after a video of her singing “Hallelujah,” at her school’s Christmas show, went viral on the internet.

Despite Kaylee’s autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), singing has greatly helped her build confidence.

Even though her disorders effects how she relates and communicates to people, Kaylee’s headteacher, Colin Millar told UTV, “For a child who came in P4 [Primary Four] and wouldn’t really talk, wouldn’t really read out in class, to stand and perform in front of an audience is amazing.”

Kaylee’s rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah has been praised by people of all nations as both heartwarming and beautiful.
