Anna Kennedy OBE Founder of the National Autism Charity AnnaKennedyonline first met André in the Wirral where he performed in the AGT Roadshow at The Pavillion Theatre to over 400 seated audience.
Anna was so impressed with his saxophone playing that she approached Chris Maloney (X Factor finalist who is the Founder of an Academy in Liverpool) if he could offer a scholarship.
Anna shared some of the footage from the show with Chris who immediatley agreed to offer this talented 13 year old a 6 month scholarship.
Chris told us: “We are delight to offer a free scholarship to André at our Liverpool Academy and looking forward to nurturing his talent”
Tracy Jane Adams André’s mother replied ‘This is exciting my son is so happy to be starting the scholarship at Chris Maloney Academy this month and he would like to thank Anna Kennedy OBE for making this happen.’
