Blind Girl Shines On The Voice Australia!

| Filed under: TV NewsAustraliasticInspirationThe Voice

WARNING:

If you easily cry then chances are this video will bring tears to your eyes. Well, at least it did for us.

Rachel Leahcar is legally blind, but that didn't stop her from chasing her dreams on the Australian version of The Voice.

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) where she sings La Vie En Rose.

What a beautiful voice! She has so much poise. We think she could easily be a star. The judges obviously think so, too.

Our only question is:What took them so long to hit those buzzer thingys?

We were convinced the second we heard Rachel sing, but hey, that's just our opinion.

    I have never posted on these things but is this girl a fake??? IF you look her up on youtube her user name is rayzdayz she doesn't seem blind to me. She posts an old video how she will watch and research how to do a specific performance and can read comments. Maybe I'm wrong but….we'll see

    Girl with visual impairment would have been the more pc, less offensive term. Always remember: person first, disability second.

    Negative comments and accusations to yourself? Think so. Theres alot of background work that goes into the filming of a T.V show like the Voice and if she was fake the producers would know. How insensitive and ignorant are you to accuse a girl of faking blindness. She sang beautifully AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!!

    Re: ll0134 – she has retinitis pigmentosa - which means she gradually goes blind. she is now 90% blind at 18. you are so heartless

    It's so cool to see someone who also has RP take part in these things :) it's not that all people with RP are completely blind.They lose vision slowly due to their retina cells dying and so less and less is seen over time.It's a horrible disease which i didn't know existed until I was diagnosed with it myself around age 30 it just slowly robs you of your sight and you can have it without knowing it until you start bumping into stuff.

    Re: ll0134
    "Maybe" you're wrong? Here's some bad news for you: you ARE wrong. Her blindness is well documented. She has for several years been an ambassador for Australia's Royal Society for the Blind. At only 18 she is 90% blind due to Retinitis Pigmentosa. Congrats for being an ass………

    Re: ll0134 – Rachael suffers from retinitis pigmentosa which is a degenerative eye disease, therefore earlier footage of her when she was younger may indicate she did have ok vision.

    As for her real name - this has not been revealed hence the surname is Rachael backwards.

    I hope this answers your question to whether or not she is blind or not.

    110134 - no, she is NOT a fake. I'm friends with her. What does a blind person look like? She has 10% vision so she is still able to see a select amount of things, and has text magnified. I'm so proud she has made it into the next round and #3 on iTunes, and websites such as these :)
