Rachael Leahcar is a singer and songwriter from Adelaide, South Australia. The now 20-year-old was born with retinitis pigmentosa and is considered legally blind. According to the United States National Library of Medicine, the condition is quite rare and affects one in 4,000 people. The disorder can run in families and is usually a result of genetic defects. But Rachael hasn’t let this alter her hopes and dreams in the slightest.

She started taking singing lessons when she was just nine, and spent most of her childhood playing different instruments, among them the piano and the flute. At 18-years-old, she performed on The Voice Australia and shortly after landed a record deal with Universal Music Australia. She’s released three albums since then, and continues to work on her music and make public appearances.

The clip below is arguably what helped Rachael rise to fame. The teenager is led out to the stage before singing her rendition of Édith Piaf’s classic, “La Vie en rose.” It doesn’t take long for the crowd to recognize her incredible talent, as it’s on its feet in no time. Within the first minute of her performance a judge can be heard saying, “People are crying.” Check out the video below to see how amazing Rachael is up on stage.
