The little girl, from Donaghadee, is a pupil at Killard House Special School and it was a video of the school choir's version of Hallelujah that attracted more than 100,000 views.

She is ten years old, has autism and ADHD. The Facebook video has so far been viewed more than 180,000 times, and the youngster spoke with ITV to share her feelings about the incredible popularity of her performance.

"Wow what a handsome voice she has", wrote one person. "Hats off to special needs teachers all over who produce these concerts that leave all of us in tears of pride and joy and sometimes laughter".

"She gets so much confidence from the singing", he said.

"I just loved doing it".

"To stand and perform in front of an audience is fantastic", Millar told ITV.

"Kaylee was supposed to perform at a carol service at First Newtownards Presbyterian church at the weekend but was unfortunately ill", her headteacher Colin Millar explained. "It takes a lot of effort on Kaylee's part".
