An Oakland, Ont. country singer who refuses to let physical disabilities drag her down and prevent her from following her dreams of becoming a successful Canadian country musician was granted her wish.
Maddy McKenzie is a singer/songwriter who began writing music at age 15. McKenzie says her songs are a “snapshot of important memories and memories” from her life.
For McKenzie, music is a way to express herself, but she plays all her music by ear because she can’t see the notes. She has limited central core vision, and experiences light sensitivity and headaches daily as a result of her condition.
