This teen was told she’d never talk — watch her amazing jhene aiko cover

Amber Simone Chinn is a 19-year-old student at SUNY Buffalo who was born with Left Craniosynostosis — a disorder that doctors said would leave her unable to breathe on her own or speak. Now, not only is she talking, she’s singing — and using her voice for empowerment.

Here she is, singing a cover of Jhené Aiko’s “The Worst” — with a twist. “[The Worst Remix] is about women empowerment and the need to confront and walk away from domestic abuse,” she said.

“It’s hard to grasp it all but it’s pretty fun,” Amber said of her recent Internet fame. “I have confidence, but I never thought me sitting by the pool, a random video would be so viral.”

Keep it up, girl. We’ll be listening.
