She’s a karaoke queen. Seven-year-old Audrey Nethery from Kentucky is taking the Internet by storm and has become a singing sensation with more than a million followers on Facebook.

“I was inspired by Taylor Swift. Because she has all the passion and spirit and I thought I would start singing to maybe put a little passion and spirit in me so maybe I could fight off my disease,” Nethery told NBC.

The little girl has become such a hit she even got to meet Taylor Swift.

Nethery has a disease called Diamond-Blackfan Anemia. The disease is a bone marrow malfunction that fails to make enough red blood cells.
