Andy Grammer has thrilled audiences far and wide with his incredible voice and hit songs, but he was left speechless in one of the places he never imagined.
In spite of the darkness and despair in the world today, it’s moments like these that restore a ray of hope and give us that extra push to go on.
Angels sing the sweetest songs, and it’s even more significant when the angel is a little girl fighting for her life in the hospital.
Singer, songwriter, and record producer Andy Grammer had an encounter with this angel in November 2018 when he visited Children’s Health hospital in Dallas, Texas.
Grammer intended to spread hope and positivity to the patients during his visit to the facility. However, he was the one who ended up experiencing a magical performance.
Grammer got into Kylah’s room to give her a private concert as he did in the others. When he asked if he could sing for her, Kylah asked if she could sing for him instead and Grammer was more than ready to give her the platform.
The multi-platinum singer shared his thoughts along with footage of the encounter:
“She pulled out her iPad and sang her guts out to a song called ‘I Believe’ by Demi Lovato and DJ Khaled - This little girl has been in a hospital for 6 months and she has hope. She told me when she gets sad she puts this on and sings and it reminds her to be brave.”
Beyond being utterly amazed by her talent, Grammer was inspired by the positivity and hope in her voice even in the face of sickness.
“Kylah is an incredible reminder that in any situation, no matter how dire hope can be found,” said Grammer “Her voice and spirit have stayed with me this week. I am love. When I come back to Dallas, I want her to come sing on stage with me. I hope this makes your week like it made mine.”
In 2017, four-year-old Leah Carroll also became an internet favorite after her rendition of "Overcomer" by Grammy winner, Mandisa, went viral. Like Kylah, Leah was fighting for her life with a rare blood disease and at the time, had been in the hospital for 430 days.
Mandisa made a trip to the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland to meet with Leah and held a private concert for the little star.
The singer went on to hold another concert at Leah’s church and helped raise thousands of dollars for a bone marrow donor drive.
These little angels teach us that even in the darkest moments, we can choose to spread hope.
