Marlana was born with Cytomeglovirus and was discovered to be blind a few weeks after her birth. Overcoming her disability, Marlana put a lot of time into her singing.

Here we have a young Coco Jones, who you may be familiar with from the TV Disney Movie “Let it Shine.” When she was just 9 years old, she sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” for over 40,000 people at the St. Louis Rams vs. the Atlanta Falcons game. She must have nerves of steel because we wouldn’t be able to sing a note in front of a crowd that large.
