MANCHESTER- Christopher Duffley, 14, of Manchester is starting to get used to "going viral." His rendition of the national anthem at Fenway Park this weekend spread fast over the Internet as people from all over the world shared his video.
It was the third time Duffley had been asked to sing before a Red Sox game; he says "the third time is the charm."
For the first time, Duffley got a standing ovation before he even started to sing.
The microphone wasn't turned on. After tapping it a few times, someone fixed his audio, and he was ready to go.
Duffley paused a moment. Then the crowd went wild. After soaking up the applause, and having his family members shout, "Sing, Christopher, sing!" Christopher sang the Star Bangled Banner without missing a beat.
The Fenway crowd gave him a second standing ovation as he happily waved and walked off of the field.
Duffley isn't just any 14-year-old who happens to have a gift for music. One pound at birth, he was born blind, and then diagnosed with autism as a toddler.
"He came into our household when he was 15 months old, and he didn't really speak much until he went to music therapy when he was 7," said Duffley's father Stephen.
His musical abilities and involvement with charitable organizations are well-known in New Hampshire. He recently wrote his first original song and this week, released his latest album.
