Kaylee, who attends Killard House Special School in Co. Down, has discovered that singing helps her manage her conditions, according to Yahoo.

“With the autism she’s quite shy, and when she sings it sort of takes over, and she doesn’t think about anything else,” said Lloyd Scates, her music teacher.

Scates added that Kaylee began to take part in extracurricular activities at the school since she started singing.

Kaylee shot to fame when she performed "Hallelujah" with her school choir last year, which quickly went viral.

Pentatonix insisted on joining Kaylee on stage when the group heard that she was going to perform on "Little Big Shots."

The a cappella group even told their fans that they were very excited to sing with her.
