Last year we posted a video by Kaylee Rogers, a young girl with autism who attends the Killian House School in Ireland. That video and information can be found below.
Kaylee and students are back this year with two videos, the first is “Adore” sung by Kaylee herself. https://www.youtube.com/embed/nYTimjnBJ_4
Second is a melody of sorts featuring Kaylee, backed up by the students of the school.
This is the original video we posted with this young singer:
At the time of the video below, Kaylee Rogers was 10 years old and attending the Killard House School in Donaghadee, County Down in northern Ireland.
According to the school’s website:
Killard House School is a co-educational Controlled School providing for children and young people with additional special educational needs. These include Moderate Learning Difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and associated Emotional barriers.
According to several sources, Kaylee has a mild form of autism.
Colin Millar, head teacher at Killard House, said: “For a child who came in P4 and would really talk, couldn’t really read out in class, to stand and perform in front of an audience is amazing.
“It takes a lot of effort on Kaylee’s part.”
The performance here is good not because of any “special needs,” but rather it is great because of Kaylee Rogers. It is difficult to believe how great this child’s voice is. Simply mind blowing. https://www.youtube.com/embed/Bmx–WjeN7o
We are truly blessed to hear such a wonderful voice from such a young person.
However, there are those who can’t let the beauty of the music stand on its own.
In the comments of the videos, people started to attack the kids because of the kids’ disabilities.
We cannot understand that at all. If you feel the need to make hateful and hurtful comments about kids with disabilities, please do us all a favor and turn in your humanity card.
So instead of the kids seeing positive reinforcement from people all over the world, the comments were closed and eliminated.
The lack of class and brain cells of others should not and do not detract from this young girl, her classmates and the school.
Mum Tracy said: “Kaylee has a gift with singing. She’s a very sweet girl with a heart of gold.
“She brings smiles to people’s faces each day and touches peoples hearts and souls when she sings.
“She’s actually changed peoples lives the past three years. People who have dealt with life’s challenges – cancer, deaths – and the letters we get all say that when she sings it warms their hearts and makes them smile again through the tough times.”
The cover of NOEL has just been released and Kaylee’s beautiful voice shines through alongside the school choir. Have a listen!
