Teenager with Disability Stuns Audience While Singing National Anthem

At a Minor League Baseball game in South Carolina, 13-year-old Sawyer McCarthy moved the audience to tears with his rendition of the national anthem. Sawyer’s performance at the Columbia Fireflies on April 28 went viral, amassing over 5.5 million views on Facebook. His mother, Brianna McCarthy, expressed immense pride as Sawyer’s voice resonated globally, uniting people from various countries.

John Oliver, the promotions manager with the Columbia Fireflies, noted Sawyer’s previous performance of “God Bless America” and their eagerness to have him sing again. Despite never having voice lessons, Sawyer’s natural talent and love for singing bring joy to many.

Sawyer, who has Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, a condition leading to blindness and other challenges, discovered his musical gift at an early age. His ability to harmonize and learn music quickly is attributed to his heightened hearing. Despite his disability, Sawyer shines with a passion for singing, aiming to inspire and bring smiles to others.

Humble and soft-spoken, Sawyer dreams of performing on “America’s Got Talent” despite his nerves about Simon Cowell’s critiques. His mother believes that singing is Sawyer’s unique way of communicating, transcending his difficulties with regular conversation. Wherever he performs, Sawyer’s voice leaves a lasting impact.
