Teen With Brittle Bone Disease Delivers Rousing Rendition of National Anthem
Sparsh Shah blew spectators away at a recent New York Knicks game.
A 13-year-old boy, who's stricken with a rare bone disease, blew spectators away at a recent New York Knicks game as he sang an incredible rendition of the national anthem.
Singer Sparsh Shah told Inside Edition that his “heart was racing” during the rousing performance.
Belting out the national anthem at Madison Square Garden may be an achievement for anyone, but for Shah, it is a moment of triumph.
The teen suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta, a disease that has rendered his bones fragile and extremely easy to break.
“Even by doing the most mundane of things, I can get hurt,” he said.
But that can't stop his powerful voice, which led him to become a YouTube sensation last year when he recorded himself singing Eminem’s "Not Afraid."
Shah, who also goes under the moniker Purhythm, caught the attention of the Detroit rapper’s label, Shady Records, which tweeted about him.
