Adele’s Latest Fan Duet Was With A 12-Year-Old Girl With Autism

On Tuesday (March 8), yet another lucky fan was invited on stage by the "Hello" singer, to duet with her on "Someone Like You".  After she spotted a banner in the crowd at Manchester Arena that read, "It is my dream to sing with Adele", she couldn't resist.

Because Adele isn't one to let dreams go unrealized, she called Emily Tammam up onstage and let the 12-year-old have the mic. The crowed was wowed by the middle schooler , as well as Adele, who led the audience in cheering for her.

Emily has autism, ADHD, and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type three (a genetic condition that caused her to use a wheelchair two years ago).
 "She has a constant struggle with social situations, but amazingly she manages to sing in public," Emily's dad, Ray, told The Mirror. "She has a different persona when she is on stage."
Two years ago, Emily auditioned for Britain's Got Talent, however didn't make it to the TV round. Luckily, Adele could tell she had talent just by spotting her in the crowd.

"Adele is her favorite singer. Luckily we were very close to the small stage in the middle - we were sat right next to the stage," Ray said. "She had a sign saying 'It is my dream to sing with Adele' which she held up. Right at the end at the second to last song of the night she was reading out one or two of the signs. She turned around and Emily put the lights on her sign, Adele saw it and said 'OK, come on the stage'. She came up on the stage, as I was sat there thinking, 'Oh my God'. Emily went up quite happily, she loves singing. She sings every day of her life."

Emily's impromptu performance is the latest step in her journey to prove that living with disabilities doesn't mean you can't follow your dreams. "Emily said she wants to show people that have disabilities or mental issues, they can still do mainstream things like singing," Ray said. "They should not be stopped from doing them."
