A teenager from Buffalo, New York was once faced with the prospect of never being able to talk. But somehow she found her voice and now sings beautifully for the world to hear!
As shared in the video below, 19-year-old Amber Simone was born with a birth defect that required surgeries at just six months old. The operations, her family was warned, would potentially affect her ability to speak.
But miraculously she made a surprising recovery at six months old that saved her voice… And now she’s a singing sensation!
A friend recorded Amber singing at a pool party, and once it was uploaded it went viral. No one expected it to get over 2 million views between Facebook and YouTube. But this start has helped the young star make her way in the music industry.
“It’s hard to grasp,” Amber told WGRZ-TV. “I have confidence, but I never thought me sitting by the pool, a random video would be so viral.”
The Buffalo State College student is now studying music and psychology, and working with local producers on original songs.
