An online campaign has got underway to promote a group of autistic young people’s bid to be pop stars.
The group of eight young people, who are supported by autism charity Prior’s Court, recorded their own song, Let Me Shine, at London’s Abbey Road studios.
The song is being made available by Prior’s Court to download via the main music download sites including iTunes, Spotify and Deexer.
In addition, a documentary video is being promoted online detailing the making of the song.
“The young people at Prior’s Court all have severe autism and complex learning difficulties – as well as an average of another four diagnosable conditions and 80% of them are non-verbal,” said a Prior’s Court Spokeswoman.
