This Brought a Tear to my Eye

This rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah brought a tear to my eye.

The 10-year-old soloist has autism and ADHD but the teachers at Killard House Special School say singing is having a dramatically positive effect on her development.

I think this is wonderful.

Me too.

I linked the same video on Anna's Merry Christmas thread this morning.

There's something angelic about her voice. And it's probably a bit more personal for me because Killard is just a few miles down the road.
