Teen Sings Her Way Through Brain Surgery So Doctors Can Preserve Her Talent

Posted on
A Seattle teen is singing the praises of doctors who let her sing during brain surgery.
Musician Kira Iaconetti, 19, has been performing musical theater since she was a child and has ambitions of making it a career.

She feared that might not happen after doctors diagnosed her with a form of epilepsy that triggered seizures when she listened to or performed music.
“It just [felt] like a light switch switches in my brain and suddenly I’m tone deaf. I can’t sing. I can’t process the words in time with the music,” Iaconetti told “Inside Edition.”
