Autistic girl and her choir sing a breathtakingly beautiful Christmas version of ‘Hallelujah’

The Killard House Special School released a video just in time for Christmas that has really captured the attention the world.

The video, now having been accrued hundreds of thousands of views, the school’s choir stands on stage, and out in front is 10 year old girl singing her heart out with altered lyrics to Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah.’ As she sings the verses that talk about the birth and importance of Christ, the rest of the children’s choir joins in behind her singing “Hallelujah.”

It’s nothing short of magical.

The little girl’s name is Kaylee Rodgers, from Donaghadee in Northern Ireland. She has autism, and ADHD, and according to the Independent, began singing in order to build her confidence at school.

“I just loved doing it,” she said.

The altered lyrics were originally devised by a Christian rock band called Cloverton in 2014, who had their video taken down on YouTube due to a copyright infringement claim by Sony. However, the lyrics are now being used to cover the song by the choir, and a good thing too.
