It's 10 days till Christmas! So naturally we wanted to make December 15th's Christmas advent calendar surprise extra special.
This is one of the most beautiful and moving videos we've ever seen. Every single time we watch it it brings a tear to the eye.
Last December, this video of Kaylee Rogers, a then-10-year-old girl from County Down, singing Leonard Cohen’s "Hallelujah" at her school’s Christmas recital went viral, and with good reason – it’s absolutely electrifying.
Rodgers, from Donaghadee, County Down, is autistic and has ADHD, and has used her tremendous singing gift as a way to build confidence.
In an interview with ITV after the video went viral, the school's principal talked about how major of an achievement the recital was for Kaylee.
“For a child who came in P4 and wouldn't really talk, wouldn’t really read out in class, to stand and perform in front of an audience is amazing,” he said. “It takes a lot of effort on Kaylee’s part.”
Hear for yourself how enormously talented she is:
