Beyonce Writes to Blind Teen

Beyonce

Beyonce may not have the power to heal, but a personal letter from the international superstar might just be the next best thing. The singer has recently penned a correspondence to Timmy Kelly, an 18 year-old who is blind and has cerebral palsy. Having met Timmy when he was only 13, the young man has now graduated high school and been accepted to college. Like a proud friend, Beyonce wrote about Timmy's accomplishments and how he is an inspiration to others, herself included. 

Beyonce's letter to Timmy read:

"The first time I met Timmy Kelly was in 2007, backstage at the Grammys. He was only 13 and he touched my heart with his voice and his love of music and life. He’s now 18 and he’s graduated high school — I’m so proud of him! Timmy was born blind, and with cerebral palsy. But this never slowed him down — he has proven to everyone, that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard. In Philadelphia, he’s known as the good luck charm to the Eagles and whenever he sings the national anthem before a game they always win. His strength and determination is an inspiration. Timmy was just accepted to Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance. Congratulations Timmy!

Love, B”
