22-year-old Vernon Barnard lives in South Africa and has always dreamed of becoming a big star. Everyone tells him that he’s talented enough to do big things and the tough jury of “The Voice South Africa” thinks so too. But when the judge turns around to see him, he can’t hold his tears back, because Vernon is a special young man.
Vernon was born with glaucoma. He had his sight until he was 5 years old and then it got continually worse and worse. Despite more than 16 operations, Vernon eventually went completely blind. But now his version of One Direction’s “Story of My Life” has touched the whole country. He’s already a star and this season of “The Voice” isn’t even over yet!
