Beyonce took to her Tumblr page to write a letter of congratulations to 18-year-old Timmy Kelly, a young man who lives with cerebral palsy and is blind. Since meeting him at the 2007 Grammy Awards, he has since graduated high school and will be attending college. Here’s the letter below:
“The first time I met Timmy Kelly was in 2007, backstage at the Grammys. He was only 13 and he touched my heart with his voice and his love of music and life. He’s now 18 and he’s graduated high school – I’m so proud of him! Timmy was born blind, and with cerebral palsy. But this never slowed him down – he has proven to everyone, that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard. In Philadelphia, he’s known as the good luck charm to the Eagles and whenever he sings the national anthem before a game they always win. His strength and determination is an inspiration. Timmy was just accepted to Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance. Congratulations Timmy!
This is definitely sweet!
