An 11-year-old blind girl in the Philippines just covered Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball," and the video has gone viral on YouTube. Probably because this pint-sized darling kinda blows Miley’s nekkid video out of the water -- and she didn’t even have to lick a hammer.
The girl, identified as Joyce Jimenez, puts heart and depth into the words she sings as her fingers read the lyrics in braille. And her voice is stellar. No gimmicks needed. No swinging around in your birthday suit to convey emotion. Just openness. Miley should take note.

The video already has nearly half a million hits (as of Tuesday afternoon), and the comments are awesome. One guy said he shed a “manly tear,” and a bunch of people said they were glad to know she hadn’t watched Miley’s video.
Watch the video and see if you think it’s better than Miley’s:
What do you think? Is this cover better than the original?
