Meet the 13-year-old X Factor contestant who has inspired millions with her talent and spirit

Rion Paige, the 13-year-old X Factor contestant whose audition went viral, joined Glenn on Wednesday’s Glenn Beck Program to talk about her resilient spirit in the face of adversity, her faith, and her hopes for the future. Rather than dwell on her disability, Rion has made it her life’s mission to avoid victimization and to use her talents to change the world.

        Draxx, for Heaven’s sake!  She’s 13!  Most kids at 13, especially today, think they ARE God! And who knows, the way they are treated, they may be.

        • George Roberson

          with a moniker like “randypants” you automatically know he is a perverted son of a bitch.

         If you don’t like Glenn Beck, go back and copulate to MSNBC you hate-monger!  And To attack someone in that fashion says a hell of a lot about your character.  People like you are what causes unrest!

      Glenn oozing his smarm around a kid is particularly gross

        Not nearly as gross as being exposed to your ignorant vulgarity.

      • Mark Reed

        That says more about you and what is going through that twisted perverted mess, you call a brain!  Show some tact, Creep!

         You are a disgusting pervert. And what’s worse is that you incite others to pervert a great thing.

    I have a terrible singing voice and no one feels sorry for me!  No one can see my handicap.  They can only hear it.  But mostly I hide it.  The shame it too great.

    He only appears to be a bit ‘creepy’ because he’s doing a show at the time people. He’s being a host and he’s in his personal ‘host style ‘ mode. :)

    and my husband is also very proud of this wonderful young lady. He taught her when she was around 8 yrs old. he said she was very independent at the young age too. she dropped something on the floor and when he went down to get it , she said to him. I can do it, and by gosh she did. she also typed him a note too which he save.

       I agree; something wonderful is starting to happen. The Lord has positiioned some strong believers: consider the Robinson clan of “Duck Dynasty” and some bachelor show had 32 contestants and the one who won was the only VIRGIN! I am encouraged.

      BUT: This is no time to be complacent; America has an enemy that is getting very close to destroying the greatest nation in all human history.
      THE MOST IMPORTANT MOVIE ON AMERICA EVER. PERIOD!
      AGENDA; GRINDING AMERICA DOWN is much, much, much more then you think!
      EVERY PATRIOT, VETERAN, BELIEVER, BIKER, TRUCKER, CITIZEN needs to see this movie! It is an awesome teaching tool on the 100 year effort to destroy us within by detaching us from any MORAL anchors. It is not for nothing that Marx tied destroying Capitalism to removing God!

    A truly remarkable young lady! A winner regardless of how she places on the X Factor – but it wouldn’t surprise me if she won it all.

    Rion is so inspirational, I think with God as her rock and her family alongside her she will continue to amaze people both with her singing and her outlook of life!
