One day I was teaching a SPED music class, and he broke out in song, singing the Peabo Bryson Disney duet "Beauty and the Beast"! I was in tears!

I took videos with my iPhone, and a friend of mine who is a great videographer edited this film together so I could share with others! Please share this video, because there are other Autistic children out there like Isaac that have amazing music abilities, and these abilities can be used as a form of communication! For example, after Isaac started singing for me, his teacher tried singing a question to Isaac, and he answered in song! This could happen for others like Isaac! Let's help these children communicate! God Bless!

10-year old Kaylee Rodgers from Northern Ireland has a voice that is being heard around the world. A recent video of the middle schooler singing a Christmas version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" with her school choir has gone viral, not only because Rodgers has an incredible voice, but because she's overcome some incredible challenges to share that voice with the world. According to her principal, Colin Millar, Rodgers has autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), but singing has helped her build up her confidence. "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," Millar said. "Hallelujah", written by Leonard Cohen over the course of five years, was recorded by dozens of artists including Celine Dion, Justin Timberlake, Willie Nelson, and Susan Boyle. But, Cohen passed away in November, just weeks before Kaylee Rodgers' rendition of his most famous song was released. Somehow, we're sure that Cohen would approve of this stunning remake. Hear Kaylee Rodgers sing "Hallelujah" in the video above.
