The beautiful voice of a 10-year-old girl from Co Down is being heard around the world after her version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah at her school play has become an internet sensation.

Kaylee Rodgers has autism and ADHD, but has been growing in confidence with every performance after starting to sing at the age of just three.

She is a pupil at Killard House Special School and it was a video of the school choir’s version of Hallelujah that attracted almost 1,000,000 views.

Kaylee said that “it was really amazing how many views I got".

“I just loved doing it", she added
