KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C. — A little girl with a big voice is headed to Nashville.
Jaiden Huffman’s family said this 10-year-old from Kings Mountain was born to perform.
“She was singing before she was crawling,” her father, David Huffman, told FOX46.
Jaiden said she’s always wanted to be a professional singer just like Carrie Underwood.
She’s already accomplished so much even though she’s had to overcome more challenges than most kids her age.
Jaiden has a genetic disorder called ocular albinism.
“They told me that I would never be able to drive a car or ride a bike or to see many things,” Jaiden told FOX46.
That, however, never stopped Jaiden from chasing her dreams.
She posed a YouTube video of her singing and that got her an invitation to perform on the big stage.
“I got the invitation to sing in Nashville, I was like ‘oh my God. I did not just get this invitation,'” she said.
Now she’s headed to sing at the Country Music Awards next week.
