He Was Born Blind and With Autism, But When He Gets on Stage It’s Hard to Believe That!

Please, meet the adorable and very talented siblings Christopher and Grace Duffley. These two know how to rock the house. Grace with her angelic voice and magical ukulele performs alongside her little brother. Christopher was born blind and has Autism, but that doesn’t stop him from realizing his dream. Stephen and Christine Duffley, Christopher’s adopted parents, were the ones to introduce the boy to the world of music. To their surprise, Christopher began singing before he could hold a conversation. When you see this boy on stage, you will not believe he has health issues, he is totally awesome. LIKE and SHARE this video with your friends if you enjoyed this uplifting performance as much as we did. This boy is such an inspiration!



Christopher is a living proof that anything is possible if you really put your heart and soul into it. He was born prematurely at 26 weeks. Christopher weighed only 1 lb 12 oz at birth and was rendered blind due to Retinopathy of Prematurity. When Duffleys adopted the boy, they had already had 4 kids of their own aged 8 months to 8 years. This religious big-hearted family welcomed Christopher and surrounded him with an enormous amount of love and support. His siblings write the songs that he performs with his sister in their church, nursing homes, schools, on fundraising events and local non-profits. Today Christopher is 13 years old, he has sung the national anthem at over 100 events. His most notable performance is the national anthem at Fenway Park (July 2011) and NASCAR racing (Sept. 2011) which was his first major TV performance. The boy also loves playing the instruments. His first instrument was piano. Christopher also loves experimenting with the trumpet, guitar, and drums. What a talented young man!
