A blind girl from a small fishing village in the Philippines has gone viral with her beautiful rendition of Whitney Houston’s cover of I Will Always Love You.
Elsie has never been to school and speaks no English, yet she memorizes the lyrics of her favorite songs and is making headlines after nailing the title track from The Bodyguard feature film. Her acapella version has received thousands of views on Facebook.
As noted by unilad.co.uk, the uploader wrote: “This is Elsie again with another song. She is blind since birth, cannot speak English but she memorized these songs and sings like an angel! She has never been to school, never learned English. She listens to songs and learns the song. She has one of the most Amazing voices I have ever heard. She lives in a small fishing village in the Philippines.”
One commenter wrote: That is what talent is. What an amazing young girl and her voice speaks for itself.
