Fourteen-year-old Christopher Duffley, from Manchester, New Hampshire, sang his version of the national anthem just prior to Boston Red Sox/Cleveland Indians game earlier this week.
And he crushed it.
What might amaze you or possibly move you to tears is the fact that Christopher is autistic and blind.
He overcame those obstacles, delivering a stirring rendition of the anthem that resulted in a tremendous reaction from both fans and players.
via NBC Washington:
“And here to perform our National Anthem is a young fan who uses his musical talents to inspire people across the globe,” the announcer said in introducing Duffley.
Duffley paused before starting the anthem when the microphone didn’t appear to be working. The crowd gave him encouragement and a loud ovation — as did the players from both dugouts — as he waved before starting.
When it was over, the ovation was even longer.
According to his website, Christopher was born prematurely and suffered Retinopathy of Prematurity which rendered him blind. His musical talents have been on display at NASCAR events and previously at other events held at Fenway Park.
