Little Girl Belts Out Hallelujah And Gives Crowd Goose Bumps


Audience Moved By Pentatonix And Kaylee’s “Hallelujah” Performance!


Every child is unique and each of them has their own amazing talent. Little Big Shots is a popular variety television show that is known to discover the most incredible kids all over the world. We are used to watch these talented children perform on stage and most of them usually take a special place in our hearts. But nothing prepared the world for a song rendition of this talented Irish singing sensation with her favorite acapella group, Pentatonix!


Pentatonix is an acapella group composed of talented singers from Arlington, Texas. They are Scott, Mitch, Kirstie, Kevin, and Matt. They are the winners of NBC’s “The Sing-Off” in 2011. The group is known for their powerful voices and their songs hitting the top charts. This performance with Kaylee Johnson on the Little Big Shots stage was the most awaited part of the show that night.

Kaylee With Her Incredible Voice On Little Big Shots


Kaylee Johnson is an 11-year old girl from Ireland. She is a shy girl, but she has incredible talent. She was invited to perform on Little Big Shots to showcase what she’s got! Before she started her performance, she was proudly introduced by the host Steve Harvey saying:


“She’s 11 years old. And tonight, she’s performing with one of the best singing groups in the world, Pentatonix. Give it up for Kaylee!”


The audience cheered as soon as Kaylee started singing the song, “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen which was also popularized by Pentatonix. She looked like a princess in her white dress and baby blue ribbon belt, paired with her silver shoes. When she started singing the first few lines, her voice left the audience in awe. When she was joined by the Pentatonix, all of their voices rang beautifully in the Little Big Shots Theater. Everyone fell silent, clearly moved by the performance of the six talented singers on stage, especially the little girl in the middle, Kaylee Johnson.


Kaylee – A Special Girl With Special Needs


While everyone was amazed by the performance of Kaylee, the world didn’t know that Kaylee is special. This adorable little girl was diagnosed with mild autism and ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder at an early age. According to her teachers, Kaylee is really quiet and didn’t speak much. But everything changed last year when she performed with the Killard House Special School choir in Northern Ireland. They sang the most beautiful rendition of the song “Hallelujah.”

Despite having an autism and ADHD, this did not stop her from doing what she is most passionate about, singing. She started performing more and this led her to participate better in school. According to her music teacher, Lloyd Scates, “When she sings, it sort of takes over and she doesn’t think about anything else.” During her Little Big Shots performance, she was accompanied by her music teacher for moral support.


Her performance in the Little Big Shots showed the world that having rare disorders should not be a hindrance in developing a talent. On that stage, she did not show the shy and quiet Kaylee. But instead, what transpired most is the talented and confident Kaylee that everyone started to love. She will always be known as the quiet girl in school, but her talent had reached the hearts of every person who got the chance to watch her on that Little Big Shots stage.
