We’ve heard adults sing “Hallelujah” in the past, but this young girl with special needs proves you don’t need to be a grown up to have an extremely powerful and moving voice. Kaylee Rogers is the little girl from the Killard House School that you see in the touching video below. This school in England encourages Kaylee to demonstrate her confidence, skill, and charming stage presence all year round. That’s why her rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” is so beautiful. She belts out each note with such conviction, poise, and soul that it’s hard not to get teary-eyed while she’s on stage.
Kaylee Rogers has spent months practicing for this performance and doesn’t let her mental disability stand in her way! She knows all of the words by heart and doesn’t need sheet music to guide her! Despite the fact she has autism and ADHD, she stands in front of the crowd and delivers a hauntingly beautiful rendition of “Hallelujah,” which is no easy feat. It’s clear the 10-year-old songstress doesn’t let disabilities define her – she knows that she has so much to give to the world!
Kaylee’s performance of “Hallelujah” is one of the most heartfelt renditions out there, and the song’s lyrics are perfect for the season.
