10 Year Old Girl With Autism Leads Choir, Wins Hearts Globally
If you’re just counting down the days and moments till the New Year, here’s a delightful rendition of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, performed by a 10-year-old girl with autism, which is guaranteed to give you all the feels. This young girl from Northern Ireland led her school choir and like thousands on Facebook, where this video was posted over Christmas, we are just blown away.
It is already a social media hit and an inspirational one of course, knowing that the girl — Kaylee Rodgers, from Donaghadee, County Down, has autism and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). The video has gained almost 170,000 views in three days from people around the world. It was posted by by a parent Nichola Martin, whose son is also in the choir.

Colin Millar, head teacher at Killard House, said, “For a child who came in P4 and would really talk, couldn’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.”
Watch the breathtaking performance below:
We adore you Kaylee!!
