20-year-old Grace Davies has been writing music since she was 16 years old. Today, she's singing one of her original songs to the X Factor UK judges as she auditions. Her incredible song titled 'Roots' really amazed the panel of judges.
Each time Grace hits a note perfectly, the judges faces freeze in amazement. It's hard to believe this young girl wrote a song this beautiful all by herself. No wonder she's been chosen to go to the next round of auditions.
What were you doing when you were 16 years old? I sure wasn't writing songs this amazing at that age! What a talented young woman!
Most teenaged boys wouldn't dream of taking their little sister along with them to a school dance. But AJ Spader is not your typical teenage boy. And this teen asked his little sister to be his date to his first high school dance for a reason that both warmed and broke my heart all at the same time!
You see, AJ's littler sister, Rebekah, is battling a terminal illness. And after multiple treatments, including a bone marrow transplant, have failed, only God knows exactly how long the 10-year-old girl has left on this earth. So, her 15-year-old brother selflessly set out to do something special for Rebekah.
After receiving Rebekah's heartbreaking diagnosis, the family adopted the motto "Broken, brave, blessed." And so, AJ surprised his little sis with a poster that read: "I would be broken if you weren't my sister because you taught me how to be brave, and I would be blessed if you went to formal with me."
Friends and family were all there to share in Rebekah's excitement as she gleefully accepted her brother's sweet offer. It remained a family affair as Rebekah got ready for the big night with the help of her mom, sister and grandma. The sweet girl got to feel like a princess as she had her hair and make up done, topped off with a beautiful tiara.
Looking stunning in a dazzling navy blue dress, Rebekah simply beamed as she joined her big brother and his friends.
The jovial crew socialized over pizza at the family's home and posed for pictures. When it came time to head to the dance, little Rebekah wasn't feeling up to it. She'd been in the hospital just three days before, so the family says it didn't come as much of a surprise. Still, AJ gave Rebekah a joy-filled evening she will never forget.
And it's a memory the family will always cherish, as well. Though they don't know how long Rebekah has, they can rest assured they are making the most of that time with moments like these.
