Christopher Duffley Is Blind And Autistic But His Voice Will Bring Tears To Your Eyes

Christopher Duffley describes himself as "a 12 year old musician/singer who happens to be blind and autistic."

At a recent performance at World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro, Tenn., Duffley touched the hearts of the congregation with a moving rendition of "I Can Only Imagine."

Marilyn Terrana commented on the inspirational video to say, "It makes me think who is really handicapped, us or them? A heart so pure and trusting Christopher and other children with special needs should be what we model ourselves after."

Duffley was born prematurely at only 26 weeks, weighing only 1 pound 12 ounces with cocaine in his system, but he survived these challenges against all odds.

"He teaches us to not see everything with our eyes, but to see things the way God sees things, through our heart," said his aunt Christine.
