This lip-sync comes in with more force than a "Wrecking Ball."

Nathaly Hernandez, aged just 2 and a half years, loves to mouth the words to Miley Cyrus’ big hit. But the lyrics ring especially true for the toddler, who has a congenital condition that affects her joints and makes it difficult for her to move around, WAVE reports.

Since she was 3 months old, Nathaly has been a patient at Home of the Innocents, a Louisville, Kentucky-based nonprofit that treats children for a variety of medical and social issues. Her roommate at the home is a teenager who often plays the song "Wrecking Ball," and Nathaly has recently started singing along.

"Recently in the past several months, we've noticed her lip-syncing and then trying to sing along with," Mary Peters, a speech-language pathologist at Home of the Innocents told WAVE. "The Miley Cyrus song, one day it was just playing and she broke out to her gestures and emotions on her face. It was just like she was in the music video herself."

The staff at the home took a video of one of Nathaly’s performance and posted it to their Facebook page on Friday. Since then, it has racked up more than 50,000 views.

"When I see the video, it's a surprise," said Angel Hernandez, Nathaly's father. "I don't have words to explain. She's changed my life." Nathaly has made positive progress at Home of the Innocents since she arrived as a 3-month-old baby, and will be going home soon, WAVE reports.
