But Marlana Vanhoose has repeatedly proved that people aren’t defined by a disability, as her incredible singing voice has wowed the nation yet again with a stunning rendition of the National Anthem at the Home Run Derby.

It’s a rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” that left many Home Run Derby viewers with chills Monday night.

Blind teenager Marlana VanHoose, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of two, left many in tears when she opened MLB’s annual home run competition with a stirring rendition of the national anthem.

“Wow!” the sportscaster said at the conclusion of the performance. “If that doesn’t get you ready for a home run derby nothing will.”

Marlana is proof that we can’t judge people by how they look or what their abilities are. Everyone has worth and value, and everyone has their own talents to contribute to the world.
