A Buffalo, New York teenager who was told she’d never be able to talk has found her voice – and it’s pitch-perfect.
19-year-old Amber Simone was born with a birth defect that required surgeries at just six months old – operations that doctors warned would potentially affect her ability to speak.
Amber’s surprising recovery saved her voice, and a friend recently recorded her singing at a pool party, and posted the video. Nobody expected it to get over two million views between Facebook and YouTube.
“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.
