Cute story

Quebec boy, 9, sings for Pope Benedict
A nine-year-old boy from the Quebec City area lived his dream of singing for the Pope on Thursday in Rome.

Jérémy Gabriel, who suffers from a rare syndrome that causes facial disfigurement and deafness, sang unaccompanied in a clear, true voice for a small group that included Pope Benedict XVI.

The song was Je louerai l'Éternel, which means "I will praise God."

The boy later had a private audience at the Vatican with the Pope, who hugged him and gave him a rosary.

"My heart was beating very fast, but once I started singing I was fine," Jérémy later told the Associated Press, speaking in French.
Good for him!
