Autistic girl from Northern Ireland will blow you away with her cover of 'Hallelujah

Doc Thompson fills in for Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" and shares the story of Kaylee Rodgers, a 10-year-old girl from Northern Ireland with ADHD and autism whose moving vocal performance has gone viral overnight.

In the truly remarkable video, Kaylee leads a chorus of her fellow students at Killard House School, a special-needs school in the town of Donaghadee, in a Christmas spin on Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," with the lyrics changed to reflect the sacred circumstances of Jesus Christ's birth.

Doc explains that Kaylee began singing at school to help her build confidence in interacting with other people, an activity she finds very difficult. Even Kaylee's parents didn't expect that the results would be so dramatic, but as Doc reports "her parents said that it's helped her, and she's been thrilled to see how many people have watched this online."

"I tend to believe that everybody —no matter how much you struggle, no matter what difficulties you have, no matter how little you have to offer — that everybody has a talent or talents," Doc says. "That everybody has something that they do very well. It may not be easily recognizable. Maybe they never pursue it. Maybe it's hidden their entire life. But everybody gets certain gifts from God. Certain gifts that can be used to help other people."
