Doctors said someone with her condition would likely never be able to sing. This brave young girl refused to take that for an answer. What she proceeds to do is absolutely incredible.


Ladies and gentlemen, this is Madison Tevlin. Born with Down Syndrome, experts believed she would never be able to use her vocal chords correctly.  As the video explains, Madison uses twice the standard vocal energy (measured in microvolts) in order to speak,  so imagine how much she has to use in order to belt out these notes!

How rare is Down Syndrome? Well, according to NDSS.org, "One in every 691 babies in the the United States is born with Down syndrome, making Down syndrome the most common genetic condition. Approximately 400,000 Americans have Down syndrome and about 6,000 babies with Down syndrome are born in the United States each year."
