This Video of an Autistic Girl Singing "Hallelujah" in School Choir is the Joy You Needed to End the Year

As the year comes to a close, many people around the world are coming together. Whether it is getting ready for the holidays or for the excitement of the new year, these worldwide celebrations do not go unnoticed, or in some cases, unheard.

From a small town in Northern Ireland, one school choir has left the world in awe, according to Mashable.

Kaylee Rodgers, a 10 year old with autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), led her school choir in singing Leonard Cohen's renowned song, "Hallelujah."

Mashable noted that "singing has helped [Rodgers] build up her confidence" and her voice — now circulating the world in a viral video — is definitely the sound we needed to ring in the new year with joy.

Watch the breathtaking performance below.
