PHOENIX -

One young girl has a special way that's she shows her support of our military.

The 3-year-old sings the National Anthem and she's become a big hit online.

Grace Anna has captured hearts everywhere.

Her parents, Angie and Jeff Rodgers, first started sharing her singing videos on Facebook for family and friends.

Little did they know, their daughter would inspire complete strangers.

FOX 10's Kristin Anderson caught up with Grace's mom, Angie, on the phone from Liberty, Kentucky.

Grace Anna started to sing her words before she could actually speak them.

When her mom, Angie, posted her videos on Facebook, the world took notice.

"She loves my iPhone. So, we just sit there and take videos of her - of her singing - and post them on her Facebook and it just kinda took off," said Rodgers.

To the naked eye, Grace is just your typical toddler singing her heart out.

But reality is, everyday is a fight.

Grace was born with a very rare form of dwarfism, which presents many challenges like blindness.

"I was actually offered six times to abort her. And we ended up asking for a different doctor because they wouldn't take no for an answer.  And I finally told them - it doesn't matter what you tell me or what could possibly happen with this little girl... we want her," said Rodgers.

On this Veteran's Day, Grace has been invited to sing at an elementary school in Russle Springs, Kentucky.

"Grace has a grandfather and two great grandfathers who were veterans, and who're no longer here. And I would guarantee, if her grandfathers could've heard it today, they would've been overjoyed," said Rodgers.

"She just shows joy for life, through all she's been through - through her little singing... she just has so much joy in it. It must makes me feel very proud to be her mama," said Rodgers.

The Rodgers family has set up a Gofundme page to help in their efforts to fix their house to accommodate Grace's needs.
