A 13-year-old girl proves that music helps heal everything that ails us as humans. Born with a rare disease called arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, which has caused her wrist joints to be deformed, Rion Paige could have chosen to have a negative attitude in life, but instead she has the most amazing spirit that shines through when she performs.
Notoriously tough-to-please X Factor judge, Simon Cowell, says it all around 5 minutes in. This girl is literally extraordinary. She is beautiful inside and out, and her talent shows this. Her performance of Carrie Underwood’s song “Blown Away” reminded Simon of Carrie first appearing on the set of American Idol as a singing hopeful. I think it’s safe to say that this girl’s amazing talent – and triumphant back story – makes for a true star. I can wait to see where her talents take her.
