Blind Autistic Boy Performs Fenway Park National Anthem (Video)
On Monday, prior to the Indians-Red Sox game, 14 year-0ld Christopher Duffley took to the field at Fenway Park and performed a rousing rendition of the National Anthem in front of thousands. While Duffley had never performed at Fenway before, singing in front of many is nothing new for him, as he regularly performs on behalf of Autism Speaks, a charity that raises awareness to those affected with autism.
Here’s the video:
He can really work a crowd, can’t he?
Not bad swagger for a 14 year-old. Most of us were just awkward and couldn’t even pull off a bow tie, let alone wow a stadium of people with our singing at that age.
Honestly, it was a much better performance than you expect from a fourteen year-old boy. I mean, they’re not exactly known for their heavenly voices. They mostly sing and talk like they’re jack-in-the-boxes full of gravel.
Great stuff, Christopher.
