I wanted to share something that I thought was pretty amazing….
Elliott, my 6 year old with Aspergers absolutely loves the Glee version of Defying Gravity. What I truly find amazing is that he really likes the words of the song. He says it makes him feel better to listen to this.
I think it’s pretty deep for a 6 year old to recognize that a song has a message that fits his life.
This is one of those truly profound moments that really amaze me as a parent. I really think it’s cool that Elliott can relate to a song’s lyrics.
In my opinion, I think this song absolutely describes Elliott and I can understand why he relates to it so much. For a little boy, asked to cope with way too much in life, Elliott is struggling with many things but never gives up.
As far as I’m concerned, this song was written for him.
Way to go Elliot for having great choice in music, and being able to realize how much a great song like this means so much to people – including yourself. I love this song myself, and so does my best friend. It's a very powerful song with a great message. x3
The original version from Wicked is one of my absolute favorite songs. 🙂
