Christopher Duffley Performs Tonight on "Atlanta Live"
Twelve-year-old YouTube sensation Christopher Duffley, who is blind and has autism, will perform tonight on Atlanta Live, WATC 57's flagship show that airs live Monday through Friday between 7 and 9 p.m. E.T. Christopher will perform songs from his debut CD, Eyes Of My Heart, which was released in October 2013, reports McCain & Co. Public Relations.
Christopher appears on Atlanta Live just two days after attending the 2014 National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) convention at the Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, where he spent four days being interviewed and performing with various media outlets.
In recent months, Christopher's travels have taken him from the stage of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he performed at a celebrity-laden fundraiser with Michael Bolton and Kelly Rowland singing his background vocals, to Fenway Park where he sang the National Anthem for the Boston Red Sox baseball team.
Christopher's story as a popular entertainer began when a video of the then 10-year-old singing "Open The Eyes of My Heart" at the Capitol Center for the Performing Arts in New Hampshire went viral, garnering more than 5 million views on YouTube. News of his remarkable talent spread like wildfire, culminating in his first invitation to perform at Fenway Park.
Autism Speaks recently selected Christopher as one of "10 Amazing Individuals With Autism Who Shined In 2013."
Atlanta Live airs tonight from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information, visit watc.tv.
