MANILA, OCTOBER 29, 2013 (YAHOO SOUTHEAST ASIA NEWSROOM) By Luigene Yanoria - Finally, someone gave Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" a good image--a Filipino blind girl who reportedly hails from Davao Oriental.
In an amateur video posted on Youtube, the latest talent discovery will bring goosebumps, as she performed the former child star’s latest hit.
She was singing with a mic in one hand and braille lyrics, in another.

In some information circulating on Facebook, the girl was simply identified as "Joyce," a Grade 5 student from Brgy. Luzon in Governor Generoso town located in southernmost Philippines.
Two days after uploading, the video has so far reached close to 60,000 views and has since made the rounds of social media. "Blind Girl Sings Wrecking Ball," is also fourth in the hot picks list of Yahoo in the Philippines as of Friday (October 25).
As of this posting, the Facebook version of the video has been shared by close to 100,000 times, and liked by over 200,000 people.
The comments - mostly pleasant- have since reached 18,000. However, some opinions couldn't help but compare “Joyce” to Miley.
Facebook user Jethro Barcela, for instance, reminded the 20-year-old singer to be "sensitive," especially since the youth look up to her.
"One of the reasons why Miley Cyrus should be sensitive sa mga actions nya. Some kids consider her as their inspiration," he commented.
User Concy Con, meanwhile, said: "Somebody tag Miley! This girl got pure talent."
The former child star has been making headlines following her raunchy moves at the MTV VMAs, her failure to keep her tongue in her mouth, among others.
Early last month, the Hannah Montana star shocked the world when she appeared naked on the "Wrecking Ball" music video. The Twitterverse also shares admiration for the talented girl from Davao.
