RUSSELL COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A Kentucky toddler who sang The Star Spangled Banner has become a big hit online.

Grace Anna Rodgers, 3, of Liberty, was born with a rare form of dwarfism and has endured nine surgeries in her short life.

Her mother, Angie Rodgers, said singing comforts Grace Anna whose rendition of the United States national anthem has more than 90,000 views on YouTube.

Now her videos are playing all over the country and on military bases around the world. "We have gotten responses from as far as Scotland about how it's motivated them," said Angie, "To me is awesome that they would use our little girl to motivate our soldiers."

Grace Anna was also invited to sing at an elementary school in Russell Springs, Kentucky in honor of Veterans Day.
