NASHVILLE (BP) — “When I was really little, doctors told my mom that I would be special needs,” explains 14-year-old Savannah Grace, whose YouTube video has lots of people talking. “They said I would be autistic.” Jenifer Parris, mom to 1-year-old Neely who was born with Down syndrome, loved Savannah’s YouTube video with a twist of Katy Perry’s “Roar” and Sara Bareilles’s “Brave” (watch at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE4gzC9HJzk).
