12-Year-Old With Down Syndrome Blows Us Away With Her Special Talent

Madison Tevlin,12, can sing with the best of ’em.

The study also showed that people with Down syndrome tend to have voices with lower pitch.

But Madison isn’t letting any of this stand in her way.

Watch her tackle John Legend’s, “All Of Me” in the video below:
