Little Emma has had trouble communicating her entire life due to autism but by a miracle of God, she communicates beautifully through singing. Listen to her stunning performance of the Whitney Houston classic "One Moment in Time." It'll leave you speechle

The entire time I'm watching Emma sing Whitney Houston's 'One Moment In Time' I'm thinking: This girl has Autism? Really? Man, I sure can't tell it! Please watch and tell us what you think!

Oh, thank you so much for posting this, Barb . . . and bless your heart for directing me here!

My nephew's young (age 4) son has autism and it's a very complex disorder. He and his wife are wonderful though, even as trying as understanding his needs can be.

(I'll be sharing this with them.)

Amazing voice regardless. It is heartwarming and gives hope. When the key is found that taps into ones' autism it is truly amazing what comes out. Never give up

Wow! I'm impressed! My son is autistic, & he'd NEVER get up in front of people & sing his heart out like that.

After reading the caption and than hearing this little girl sing is a ray of hope for anyone with a child with Autism. The little things we take for granted like nodding our head to indicate "yes" has to be learned because the motor kills to do it don't receive the command from the brain. The same is true for making sounds to talk. So this little girls performance is beyond amazing or as was stated in the caption "a miracle".
I listened to this while my husband & I were babysitting our almost 3 year old twin Autistic grandsons and I cried. I cried because I was so happy for this little girl and her family because they could communicate. The frustration these children go through is unimagable and just as devestating for the family.
I pray there are more miracles to be had not just for my grandsons but all children with Autism. Thank you JLA for sharing this with me and thank you Barb for the post.

This little girl is just beautiful and her voice is just magnificent! What a gift she has been given and how wonderful it is that she is sharing it with others. This precious child makes us realize that all children hold the promise of special gifts and that they need to be nurtured and valued as individuals! That's why it is so important that parents, teachers, and all people in our society realize our responsibility in helping each child develop his or her own unique potential.

I am speechless...I am blown away at the joy and beauty of this young girl. Her voice is like an angel and her laugh at the end spoke volumes to me. It was as if a veil had been lifted for her and she was able to tell the world, see me! I am not broken, I can communicate and share my heart thru singing and music. Fantastic post Barb sweetie! And thank you Judi for directing me here. I am so glad I was able to witness the power of an autistic child who has found her voice.

We all have talents but some struggle to find and utilise them but this little girl surely found hers and was proud to share with others and she loved it all the way thru. I loved her curtsey-ing this way and that where she decided to make it a bit of fun.

Thanks for this - I needed a bit of an uplift after spending time signing all those animal petitions.
Autism is a strange affliction. It gives its sufferers a wonderful ability to learn all kinds of languages and amazing skills (and certainly this little girl has found one that will give her a "good living" later in life), while robbing them of the ability understand facial expressions or emotion in others.

When they grow up, they are often hidden in our society later in life.and often very alone..seen as people who can't get along with others. They need lots of understanding people around them when they have their panick attacks because they've just lost the plot.

It is a difficult condition to spot sometimes, but most people with autism develop strange "but comforting" repetitive nervous-tic behaviours when they are stressed. These can include rocking, flicking fingers or twiddling hair constantly, or just touching something over and over again. It can take many forms, so if you see one of these "repetitive" behaviours, do be kind to the person who might be having an autistic panick attack.
