If this autistic, blind boy doesn’t inspire us all, I don’t know what will. His name is Christopher Duffley. His uncle adopted him when he was less than a year old.
Christopher, besides his singing, plays multiple instruments. Born prematurely, in 2001, Christopher weighed only 1 lb 12 oz at birth and was rendered blind due to Retinopathy of Prematurity.
Christopher Duffley sings “Lean on Me” in Texas in the video. He performs at an “Autism Speaks” presentation at a Teamsters’ special occasion in this video. Another video, in which Christopher sings “Ave Maria,” is absolutely beautiful.
Christopher’s enthusiasm for his music is outstanding. You can find out what has been happening with him by going to his website. Yes, he has his own site!
