Why All the Doors Are Closed... : The Lift | Brian@GrowthWorks

Why All the Doors Are Closed...

by Brian McDermott on 10/21/12

I think I may have listened to this song a thousand times without ever really hearing it. My grasp of the lyrics never got beyond, "Boom, boom, boom, baby you're a firework," which, truly, struck me as catchy and a bit inane.

But then I slowed down to listen because a friend flagged this video on Linked In and said it was worth the eight minutes to watch... because it was being played and sung by a young girl whose parents were told when she was 2 that she might never speak a complete sentence. And here she is with superstar Katy Perry singing, "Maybe the reason why all the doors are closed; So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road."

The voice is a bit off key, perhaps, but the performance is inspiring and the message is right on.

The performance was part of a celebration to raise funds to fight autism. There is a donations link at the end, and a request to share this video. Enjoy and pass it on...
