Autistic Boy Sings Incredible Cover of “Lean on Me,” Brings the House Down
Music is incredible—it has the ability to transcend any hardship or roadblocks and connect with people, no matter where they’re from or what they’ve been through.
Christopher Duffley is one of those people. He’s blind and autistic, but he has a talent for music and a passion that I’ve never seen before.
In 2011, he posted a video of him singing the song “Open the Eyes of my Heart,” and his singing career took off.
The video has since been translated in multiple languages and received millions of views.
Duffley’s performed in venues all across the country, but his fans say his performance of “Lean on Me” in Nashville, TN with the World Outreach Church Kid’s Choir is one of his best.
Even though Duffley faces so much adversity on a daily basis, he still takes time to spread his message of hope and strength.
Watch the amazing performance in the video down below!
This choir has children ranging from ages 4-18 and they sound like angels, harmonizing their voices with one another.
It means performing in front of 16 million people on the popular television show ‘America’s got talent’.
He uses an 18 string harp guitar, which is notable for the plucked strings sitting at the top of the guitar. It almost sounds like he has a second guitarist playing with him!
