Carly Rose Sonenclar Starlight Children's Foundation: 'X Factor' Contestant Performs 'Hallelujah' With Children On Stage (VIDEO)

Not only does Carly Rose Sonenclar have crazy-good vocal talent, but she also has a big heart.

Teaming up with the children of the Starlight Children's Foundation -- an organization that helps to improve the lives of kids and their families globally -- the former "X Factor USA" contestant took the stage, where they sang a beautiful cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." By placing these children in the spotlight for a night, it's a chance for them to take their minds off the challenges they're experiencing.

"I think there's definitely a connection between all the kids and I," explained Carly Rose. "The kids are just such fighters. I get inspired by the kids -- no matter what they're going through, they'll be smiling and dancing."

Watch the performance in the video above.
