This Disabled Teen’s National Anthem Performance Will Give You Goosebumps. WHOA.

By Scout

Born blind and with a debilitating virus, Marlana VanHoose wasn’t expected to live past one year. Against the odds, she healed and taught herself to play the piano when she was just two years old.

At 18, she’s blind and suffers from cerebral palsy, but that doesn’t stop her from singing one of the most powerful renditions of the National Anthem I’ve ever heard.

Here she is singing at a University of Kentucky football game last month. She almost missed it because of traffic, but UK’s Nathan Schwake saved the day, carrying her from outside the stadium, through the tunnel to midfield.
