The video of this woman's singing has gone viral.
In an interview with Citta Nuova, her mother said her daughter has the “strength of a warrior” after enduring multiple surgeries, all of which proved unsuccessful in relieving the symptoms of her cerebral palsy. But Fresta told her mother that it’s more important that they “focus on the future”.
“I only did what I do best and that makes me happier,”Fresta says. The video of her latest performance unexpectedly went viral, garnering 60 million views on social media. The president of the Neon Cultural Association, Stefania Licciardello, physically supports Fresta during each of her performances, ensuring that she remains standing and comfortable.
Her performances are sure to challenge the way we think about life with a disability. Watch the video above to see her performance.
