A Grimsby busker has shared a special moment when he met a young blind girl with autism who was mesmerised by his music.
Clifford Woodage was playing his guitar near to the entrance to Freshney Place last Friday when it was clear that the girl, called Lacie, was excited by his music.
With her grandma, Lacie, who is in a wheelchair, stopped to listen to the music, before Clifford took her hand and helped her to play the strings.
Clifford said: “She played like an angel.
“Lacie is blind but for me she had eyes that could see. She is also autistic and sat in a wheelchair.
“Her grandma said she could hear the music and got excited and so she let her stop and listen. She told me that she was blind but for me I didn’t see that. She said she is autistic but again I saw a very intelligent little seven-year-old girl.”
He went on to explain how Lacie also started singing.
“Honestly her voice was just beautiful.
“I said to her, give me a high five, took her hand and bounced my hand of hers. When the time came for her to leave I said high five and she hit my hand with a high five, no hesitation and was right on target.
“I was super blessed that day… that is the power of music and a connection right there… Thank you Lacie for the beautiful connection.”
