Blindness Does Not Stand in the Way of Musical Talent
blindnessGrace Fisher is a junior in high school. Despite living with blindness, she has found a way to sing her heart out in women’s choir. “I’ve always been into music. I wanted to be in choir,” Fisher said.

Some people may wonder, ‘how does Grace receive cues from the conductor?’ The answer involves her choirmates: who hold her hand and squeeze in different ways when it’s time for her to sing more loudly or quietly.

“It brings us all together. We’re all connected. We’re not just all standing there separated and singing. We’re all physically connected in a way and moving together,” said Ellie Holloway, who helped lay out the system that keeps Grace on her marks.
