Original video

Be inspired. Madison Tevlin, a 12-year-old from Toronto was born with Down Syndrome. Given that children born with Down Syndrome have weakened vocal muscles, the genetic condition gives them a low-pitched sound which generally prevents individuals from being able to sing, but Madison is defying statistical odds. She loves to sing and dance and is currently working with a voice coach to continue strengthening her voice. You go, Madison! Watch this inspiring performance of John Legend’s “All of Me” in the video above.
