Autistic Boy Is Blind, But That Doesn’t Stop Him From Singing “Lean On Me” In Mesmerizing Fashion.
You may or may not have heard of Christopher Duffley, a young man with autism, who is blind and possesses an amazing talent and passion for music. His story and amazing outlook on life serve as an inspiration for so many people.
“Music to me is for one thing: it brings joy to people. Singing is a gift that I share. Because I’m blind, I see people with my heart for who they truly are instead of what they look like on the outside,” Duffley has said. It was music that taught Duffley to communicate with others.
“It was the music therapy where we realized that he really had talent, that he had perfect pitch, that the harmonies we heard were definitely a gift that he had,” his mother said.
