I Can Only Imagine–Christopher Duffley

Christopher Duffley describes himself as “a 12 year old musician/singer who happens to be blind and autistic.”

At a recent performance at World
Outreach Church in Murfreesboro, Tenn., Duffley touched the hearts of the congregation with a moving rendition of “I Can Only Imagine.”

Marilyn Terrana commented
on the performance to say, “It makes me think who is handicapped, us or them? A heart so pure and trusting Christopher and other children with special needs should be what we model ourselves after.”

Duffley was born prematurely at
only 26 weeks, weighing only 1 pound 12 ounces with cocaine in his system, but he survived these challenges against all odds.

“He teaches
us to not see everything with our eyes, but to see things the way God sees things, through our heart,” said his aunt Christine.

  1. He came to our church in Florida also. It was an amazing worship time. There’s something about a blind boy singing “Open the Eyes of My Heart” to make you wonder what he sees. Inspiring young man!!
