Steve Harvey was overcome with emotion after meeting this adorable and inspirational young singer.

Gavin Stevens has a rare form of blindness, but that doesn’t stop him from cultivating his talents and enjoying life.

The seven-year-old has Leber’s congenital amaurosis, or LCA, a retinal degenerative disease that results in severe loss of vision at birth. But being blind hasn’t stopped Gavin from his love of music and performing — he’s sang at Los Angeles Kings hockey games, for example.

He also recently appeared on Steve Harvey’s talent showcase ‘Little Big Shots,’ where he sang the national anthem in a clear and beautiful voice.

Beyond his singing talent, though, the sweetest moments came from the interview, where Steve recognized Gavin for his special qualities.

“You judge people for who they are not what they look like, so already you know how to judge people the right way,” Steve told Gavin. “See, most people don’t have that type of soul. They are so busy looking at them and coming away with the wrong opinion without even getting to know the people.”
