Georgia twins to perform in opening ceremony of Rio Olympics
A pair of Georgia twins took center stage at the Rio Summer Olympics Friday night.
They were part of a select group chosen to perform in the opening ceremony. J'son and Ja'kerria Walker are two of only eight American children chosen to stand on the worldwide stage when another Olympic torch was lit in Rio de Janeiro in front of 80,000 spectators and millions more watching around the world.
It's been an emotional journey for J'son Walker. The 12-year-old was diagnosed with a serious form of sickle cell disease in 2005.
Ever since, he's had to travel from Sylvester, Georgia, to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
But his family always had the Ronald McDonald House.
