Little did her fans know that this girl was was diagnosed with mild autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder at an early age. Kaylee, according to her teachers rarely spoke or sang, until just recently.
In an amazing turn of events her fame went viral with a Christmas-themed remake of “Hallelujah” with her choir at Killard House Special School in Northern Ireland in 2016, with over 9M youtube views as of writing. And, to be sure it led to big changes in her life.
Lloyd Scates, Kaylee’s music teacher say’s “She’s shy but when she sings, it sort of takes over and she doesn’t think about anything else. And since she started singing more … in school, she’s started to take part in more and more things in school. It’s quite spectacular.”
On March 25, her powerful voice rang true again at NBC’s “Little Big Shots” as the Grammy Award-winning, Arlington, Texas-based Pentatonix performed as her back up. Also, her beloved music teacher accompanied her for moral support.
Once they heard her story, they “knew we wanted to sing with her”, band member Scott Hoying shared.
““Hallelujah” is one of our favorite songs to sing, and the second she started singing, it just brought tears to all our eyes. She is a truly special person and a special talent.”
Watch as Kaylee brought everyone – including Steve Harvey – to their knees in her cover of “Hallelujah” and then shower her with some love by sharing this video/article.
This music is fitting for Easter celebration as well.
