Blind autistic teen wows crowd with rendition of national anthem

Fans at a Red Sox game in Boston’s Fenway Park were brought to their feet and to tears as a 14-year-old, who is blind and autistic, sang the national anthem.


It’s safe to say Duffley will be booking gigs for the rest of the year after a powerful performance on behalf of the organization. No stranger to besting obstacles in his way, Duffley managed to overcome some initial microphone troubles before giving a great anthem, and he wasn’t afraid to soak up the spotlight along the way.

He then launched into his own incredible version of the anthem, nailing every single note.

Christopher Duffley, 14, stole the show yesterday evening before a Boston Red Sox game. “And it’s an honour”.

The Youtube sensation and recording artist was born premature, weighing just 1 pound, 12 ounces.


He admits that he could sing before he could talk and has worked hard on his voice with the encouragement of his school’s music teacher.
