She needs all the vocal strength she can get, because people with this syndrome need to use twice as much energy when activating the muscles needed to sing. But Madison doesn't seem to notice the extra effort she needs to put in, as it's obvious that throughout this performance of John Legend's "All of Me," that she enjoys every minute.
Madison Tevlin, from Toronto, Canada, is defying the odds. Madison was born with Down Syndrome, and according to Down Syndrome Education International, many people with Down Syndrome have voices that are "gruff and low-pitched" and "very few... will ever be able to sing." Well, fortunately, no one has told Madison about that report. This young lady loves to sing and dance, and she's taking voice lessons to strengthen her voice.
