Adorable 8yo girl calms herself by singing through medical procedure

Heartwarming video of an eight-year-old blind girl singing through a doctor's appointment has gone viral.

Footage shows doctors attaching adhesive strips to Everlyse's head for a seizure test -  a scary thing for the young girl, who has always feared doctors.

It explains she was very anxious, until a music therapist came into the room with a guitar and Everlyse began to sing.

"Evie, who loves singing, immediately calmed down," says the video.

The video was posted on Facebook by CS Mott Children's Hospital in Michigan, US, last Friday, and has since been viewed over 1 million times.

"Can you sing 'Scars to your Beautiful' now?" says a voice off-camera.

Everlyse starts to sing the Alessia Cara song as doctors continue to work on her head.

"There's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark, you should know you're beautiful just the way you are, and you don't have to change a thing, the world could change its heart," sings Everlyse.

Comments on the video posted to Facebook praise the hospital and their music therapy programme for helping children like Everlyse.

"This beautiful child! How incredible that this team makes her music part of her healing," said one person.

"This music therapist is such a beautiful girl - she sang with my grandson [while] he was at Motts, she is such a blessing," said another commenter.
