Wow.....brought many tears of joy listening and watching this young girl.
She's going to go places and being blind will not stop a voice like that.
Bless her heart for her courage and superb musical talent.
Headline of the article: "Blind 16-year-old stuns with national
anthem"I don't get that. Why does it matter if she's
blind? Does that impair one's ability to sing? Why not just say
"16-year-old stuns with national anthem"?That being said,
she has an amazing voice, very talented young lady.
Umm... not that it really matters, but that is the University of Kentucky, whose
nickname is the Wildcats, not Kansas, whose nickname is the Jayhawks.
Amazing, as Instereo and suzyk#1 said;to Blue AZ Cougar: While I
understand what you are saying, it doesn't hurt to notice and compliment
someone who has overcome extra challenges. Being blind has nothing to do with
musical talent, but I am sure it does make life in general and accomplishing
great things like this a bit harder. I admit I know nothing about how reading
music works for the blind. (Is there a Braille technique for writing music?
She may have learned just by listening, I don't know.)
@ ksampowPoint taken, I get what you're saying. And yes, there
is actually a Braille technique for reading music -- it's actually pretty
amazing to see someone play the piano while physically reading sheet music with
one of their hands. That said -- I don't know how to read music, but I can
still carry a tune. You don't have to know how to read music to sing well.
