Meet blind girl behind viral 'Wrecking Ball' video
MANILA – She may be visually-impaired, but the 11-year old namesake of former sexy star Joyce Jimenez is surely gifted with a talented voice.
A video showing Jimenez singing Miley Cyrus' hit song "Wrecking Ball" has gone viral on social media and earned praises from netizens.
The video now has 200,000 'likes" and almost 100,000 "shares" two days after it was uploaded on social networking site, Facebook.
Jimenez, who was born blind, lives in Barangay Luzon in Governor Generoso in Davao Oriental.
The girl did not let her disability hold her back. She is also always at top of her class in school.
Before singing a song, Jimenez said she first memorizes the lyrics with the use of braille.
"Isinasaulo ko muna bago makinig sa tono," she said.
Jimenez is always ready when invited to sing at town gatherings.
Her proud mother could only cry happy tears for all the praises that her daughter received after the video caught the public's attention. Report from Hernel Tocmo, ABS-CBN News
