Boy's 'True Colors' Cover Reminds World His Sister With Down Syndrome Is Like Any Other Kid

He may be young, but this rapper's cover of Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" teaches a lesson that anyone of any age ought to learn.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, 11-year-old rapper MattyB, shares his take on the classic '80s song. The video shows his younger sister, 8-year-old Sarah Grace, who has Down syndrome, being shunned by her peers. When one compassionate girl opens up her heart to Sarah, beautiful friendships start to blossom.

While the storyline sends a sweet message, the 11-year-old's rap further emphasizes the importance of an open mind. After encouraging viewers to look beyond the differences they see in their peers, he ends his song with simple, but moving words: "there's always room for change."

We think MattyB's advice is awesome!
