Autistic girl stuns with performance of Hallelujah

Rogers was the lead singer for the song, backed by her schoolmates in the Killard House School choir in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland. About 200 other students sang in the background.

Kaylee Rogers, 10, doesn't like speaking in the classroom, but that changes when given the chance to show off her stunning singing voice.

The Christmas version that she sings of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah is being watched the world over after both BBC and ITV featured it on their news shows.

Dozens die of alcohol poisoning in Siberia after drinking bath lotion
Officials said the bottles with the lotion were clearly marked with warnings that they weren't for internal use. At a cabinet meeting on Monday, Prime Minister Dmitry said authorities need to quickly ban such substances.

"It takes a lot of effort on Kaylee's part", Colin Millar, principal of Killiard House, told UTV.

"For a child who...wouldn't really talk, wouldn't really read out in class, to stand and perform in front of an audience is fantastic", Millar said. Facebook user Nichola Martin shared the video on December 18, where it has received over 200,000 views. And one little girl is going viral for her rendition of "Hallelujah". She doesn't talk much, but her teacher says when she sings that all changes.

"I just loved doing it". "It's her way of dealing with the anxiety and really just settles her down to allow her to access her learning abilities". Kaylee Rodgers is part of an elite group of performers who not only covered Cohen's song but managed to make it their own.
