Christopher Duffley is a 14-year-old singing sensation, who is blind and has autism. He entered the world prematurely at 26 weeks, weighing just 1 lb. 12 oz., testing positive for cocaine. Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), an eye disease that affects many premature babies, rendered him totally blind by the time he was 6 months old. Adopted by his biological aunt, Christine, and her husband, Stephen, he was diagnosed with autism at the age of 5.
Defying the odds, Christopher demonstrated surprising musical ability at an early age. With the love and support of his family, his singing career began 4 years ago when a YouTube video of him singing “Open the Eyes of My Heart” went viral. Since then he has traveled far and wide, sharing his talent, his story, and his faith in God through his incredible gift of singing. His first CD, Eyes of My Heart, is a compilation of inspirational, patriotic, and sacred songs, and his second CD, Believer, was released in 2016.View Resource
