Rachel Payne is a teenager living with Asperger Syndrome - often considered a high functioning form of autism.

Singer-Songwriter, Joe Iadanza, was asked to perform the song with Rachel during his performance at a Long Island concert to benefit The Mosaic School where she is a student. Joe worked with Rachel over a two week period to rehearse this cover of "The Climb".

This song, popularized by Miley Cyrus, is a favorite of Rachel's. She sings and dedicates it here to all of her teachers, fellow students, and people living with Autism.

Very beautiful... You should be very proud of your talent
Rachel, you are amazing. :) My family has been lucky enough to hear you with GSNC Chorus over the past couple of years, but this is the first time I've heard you solo and now I understand what your mom is always going on about. I would love to see a recording of you performing Charlotte Church.
