VanHoose was born with Cytomeglo virus, and by the time she was a few weeks old it was discovered she was blind, according to her website.
She hasn’t allowed her blindness to keep her from what she loves the most -- music.
VanHoose blew the crowd away in Cleveland when she performed the National Anthem on April 2.
