Her video has received over 250,000 views.

Awesome so inspirational most of us, me included are always like woe is me and tend to dwell on the negative in our lives, and allow those things to weigh is down. Yet this young girl choose to ROAR AND NOT LET WHAT SHE WAS GOING THROUGH KEEP HER DOWN. I must say she has an amazing voice is love to hear another cover.
