Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.

I saw a video this week that just knocked me off my socks. Is it sing, songy? No. It does have dance, but mostly this girl is a gymnast. To me dance, painting, choreography, and more are all related. They often times influence each other in ways.

Here's the dance video:


Jen Bricker is the one and only featured this week. The video above isn't the one that captured my attention. The one below is.

I'm not going to tell you a lot about her because the video below covers it.

She was born with no legs. Her parents abandoned her in the hospital. A couple adopted her, and told her that they never want to hear the words I can't. Despite her disabilities she became a gymnast.

Why did this appeal to me? Well my oldest sister is adopted. I strongly believe that things happen for a reason. Even within my own sister's adoption crazy things happened. Her biological Dad went by the name of Red, our Dad goes by Red. My sister has always been so talkative. Her family is the same way. There's more to that story.

Here's the video that is so interesting:
