Sparsh Shah, a teenager from New Jersey, is not a usual teenager who enjoys music and games. He is a teen, who, in spite of his disability, is known to mesmerize people with this singing.
Sparsh, 13, has Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a condition which makes his bones extremely brittle. This condition limits his movement as his bones are susceptible to break easily. Yet, he has conquered many hearts by his singing talent and motivating words. Nothing could deter his spirit.
People admire him for his never-give-up attitude. In the past, he was also given a chance to sing the national anthem during an NBA game. His beautiful singing made the audience cry. He tells People,
The cliff you call life is a thread for me because of my syndrome. I was actually born with 35 bone fractures, coming out of my mom’s womb — but look at me now! I’m performing at Madison Square Garden!
He became a viral sensation last year when he sang a cover of Eminem’s ‘Not Afraid’. Even Salman Khan couldn’t stop from tweeting about him. The resilient teen is known as a musical genius.
Just Tweeting This . Don’t watch it , your loss … https://t.co/qFOjjlICtG

In December last year, Sparsh appeared in a TED Talk and decided to share his mantra of overcoming challenges — turning “Impossible” to “I’m possible”. He left the audience awestruck with his rapping abilities.
