The holidays were a good time as any to thank God for his many blessings. Across the World, Kaitlyn Maher’s rendition of the Christmas classic What Child Is This awed countless of audiences.
That occasion was five years ago, during Christmas Eve at the Christian Fellowship Church, around three years after she first appeared and stunned the judges and audiences on America’s Got Talent. Her angelic voice filled the entire venue, holding the church audiences rapt.
With commitment, Kaitlyn today has become a rising star who is set to appear in the film reboot of How the Grinch Stole Christmas which has Benedict Cumberbatch playing the lead. The film is a long way off, with a 2018 release date. Kaitlyn will voice Cindy Lou Who.
Hitting the High Notes in Her Singing Career
Kaitlyn, 12, was born in Michigan. Even as a toddler, she loved to sing. that God-given talent was showcased to the public in 2008 when, at age four, she auditioned for America’s Got Talent. She sang Somewhere Out There and moved on to compete in the succeeding rounds.
Though the young singing sensation was eliminated when she reached the Top 10, it set the stage for her big break in the American entertainment industry.
Kaitlyn was tapped as one of the kiddie voice talents in the American-Canadian adventure-fantasy-film Search for Santa Paws who sang the pleasing song I believe in Christmas. The film was a prequel to Santa Buddies, and a spin-off from the Air Buddies film franchise.
Kaitlyn had also been active in singing for events and institutions. She brought comfort to America’s brave men and women of the armed forces when she performed in special concerts at the Walter Reed National Medical Center and the Veterans’ Affair Center in Washington, D.C.
A few months ago, the talented young singer-actress tweeted how she loved sharing music and praying for people, like when she visited Malawi, She said she was “thankful for the opportunity to help bring hope to people in Malawi.”
Voicing a character for Illumination Studios’ brand new animated version of Dr. Suess’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas is just another feather to her little cap.
