Musharaf Asghar, a student at Thornhill Academy in northeast England, overcame an acute stammer when his teacher, Matthew Burton, borrowed an idea from The King’s Speech.
The teacher asked his student to put on some headphones playing the music of Ben Howard, and to start reciting a poem called ‘The Moment.’ Suddenly, for the first time, the words began to flow. All of this was captured in a documentary series, Educating Yorkshire, that aired on the BBC.
The segment concludes with Mushy, as he’s known, giving a short talk in front of his class, at what looks like a graduation ceremony.
It didn’t take long for his fellow students to break down in tears.
