RENO, NV  –  Falynne Lewing 13, has never had a formal dance lesson or any dance training. However, this 13 year old, who has Asperger’s syndrome will be performing at a Michael Jackson tribute concert on Oct.  23.

The show, which is to be staged at the Grand Sierra Resort will raise funds for the Nevada Humane Society and the Autism Coalition of Nevada.

Falynne only really started to dance over a year ago, and watching her, it is hard to believe that she did not talk until aged 7 and that she was delayed in walking.

Falynne’s mother, Michelle, told that they recently visited Vid-Con and Michael Jackson’s final resting place. She told of how the people there responded to her daughter:

“They wanted to meet her, they wanted to hug her, they wanted to see her dance. She brings people to tears when she dances and sings, myself included.”
