Cape Town – There wasn't a dry eye across the land on Sunday night when Vernon Barnard took to the stage for his Voice SA audition.

Vernon was born with glaucoma, a degenerative eye disease that leads to blindness, and at the age of six he lost his vision.

But this didn't stop him from pursuing his dreams.

He is a blind cricketer, and has been selected to play for the under-19 national team and participating in the T20 World Cup in India.

The 22-year-old from Strand, who started singing two years ago, wowed the coaches and the audience with his rendition of One Direction's, Story of My Life.
