Three-year-old toddler Grace Anna Rodgers is becoming quite the Internet star.

Her mother, Angie Rodgers, created a Facebook page for Grace after realizing her love of singing, which the child started to do at the age of 16 months. Since then, 117,000 people have "liked" the Grace Anna Sings page.

Grace really shot to fame after her rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" became a YouTube sensation. That video was seen by more 350,000 people around the world. Now, a new video has been posted of the cherubic little girl singing "You Are My Sunshine."

Grace Anna was born with a rare form of dwarfism called Conradi-Hunermann Syndrome.

Angie Rodgers told ABC News that a doctor told her earlier this week that Grace would have a hard time walking. But, Angie says she was also told that Grace would never hear very well, which has been proven false, and she takes everything with a grain of salt.

After all, it is evident by watching Grace singing that she is a very bright little girl.

Angie also told ABC News that Grace has been invited to sing at a veterans' benefit in Kansas and at another event in Virginia. Grace lives in Liberty, Ky.
