Viral Video: Musical Trio with Down Syndrome Makes Youtube History

Salt Lake City (October 18, 2017) – A YouTube piano trio consisting entirely of teen girls with Down Syndrome has taken the internet by storm with a beautiful rendition of Disney’s “How Far I’ll Go.” You can watch the video, which the Huffington Post calls “one of the most heartwarming videos you will ever see,” HERE!

Pianists Cambria (16), Joby (16), and Kiley (17), all born with Down syndrome, perform a beautiful rendition of the hit from the recent Disney film Moana. The video was released by YouTuber Jason Lyle Black, a nationally acclaimed concert pianist who made headlines previously with his takes on Disney’s “Frozen” and “UP.” 

“I really wanted to tell a story of individuals with special needs at the piano,” Black relates. “It’s what I call the “Susan Boyle” effect—demonstrating to others just how incredible these girls are. My goal is for us all to realize the innate potential within ourselves.”

Black arranged the music for the girls, making the video a first in YouTube history, as the first YouTube piano trio consisting entirely of members with Down Syndrome. He notes that this video is not a fundraising video, rather one dedicated to the special needs community showing just how precious and amazing every life is.

“How Far I’ll Go—A Special Piano Trio for Down Syndrome Awareness” was released to coincide with Down Syndrome Awareness month. To date, the video has received over a half a million views on various streaming platforms.
