I’ve heard this song countless times, but when this 10-year-old sings it, it’s truly something special. And when I learned the story behind this incredible little girl’s voice, I couldn’t hold back the tears. This is beautiful.
In her short life, 10-year old Kaylee Rodgers has already overcome more than most do in a lifetime. According to her principal, Colin Millar, Rodgers has autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Like many other middle-schoolers, Kaylee struggled throughout her schooling –until teachers discovered she had a secret weapon.
Little Kaylee loves to sing. And not only has it helped boost her confidence — she is actually incredibly talented!
Backed by her school’s choir, Kaylee bravely stepped up to the mic to sing a different version of Leonard Cohen’s famous song, “Hallelujah”.
Her school’s principle shared, “For a child who came in P4 (7 to 8 years old) 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.”
This is so beautiful, it moved me to tears.
I promise you don’t want to miss this. Watch little Kaylee’s unique and jaw-dropping rendition of “Hallelujah” in the video below:
Wasn’t that just beautiful? It’s so clear to me that this little angel is a gift from God.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
Thank you, Kaylee, for inspiring us to never give up and reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas. You are one incredible young lady. Please share if this precious little angel encouraged your heart today.
