The song “Hallelujahis touching in itself but when a 10-year-old girl with autism performed it in her school, it was priceless.


Kayleigh Rogers is a student of Killard House School in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland whose singing voice is astounding. Though she struggles with learning delays and ADHD, her pitch is perfect and captivating as evident in a viral video of her performance.

Kayleigh was supposed to perform at her church’s local Christmas concert but because she lost her voice and was unable to perform on the show, her school principal, Colin Millar lent a video of her singing "Hallelujah" with the school choir during a rehearsal and asked that it be aired during the show instead.

The clip drove the audience in tears hearing Kayleigh’s angelic voice singing a heavenly tune. According to Millar, Kayleigh is usually reserved and very quiet but her confidence arises when she’s singing.

"When she sings, she just opens up. To stand and perform in front of an audience is amazing. It takes a lot of effort on Kaylee's part."

With the help of her music teacher, Kayleigh was encouraged to do solos and is even looking at pursuing music professionally. Her only request is that her music teacher, Lloyd Scates would help her through it.


Kayleigh is one of many autistic children whose musical talent abounds. Another such girl is Ashleigh Fagan who’s both autistic and half-blind but is musically perfect. She’s been singing her way to people’s hearts across the globe with her numerous covers. Ashleigh not only sings but she also plays the guitar and the harp and she’s self-taught. Her videos have made her an internet sensation despite her reluctance to perform in front of an audience. She’s currently being guided by a music teacher and hopes to one day sing with her idol, Ed Sheeran. Here's her version of the popular singer's hit, "Castle on the Hill."
