Simply awesome, thanks for posting. Love seeing these type of stories.
That's great! He has a lovely voice.
Thanks Hos! Great story and he has a really good voice!
Good stuff. Gave me goosebumps.
Cannot tell you how this makes me feel. My step son is autistic and it is an everyday battle. What it took for him to just go out in public and do that is a monumental task. And then to hear him sing like that is simply phenomenal.
Thanks Hos for posting this.
Got something in my eye here...
That was so good. I love stories like this.
That was fantastic.
Amazing, isn't it, to see this man singing?? What a fantastic voice!
My oldest (21yo) has Autism, as well, Cajun. Although he is nowhere near the severity he was as a child, he still battles some things daily, as well. I die a little inside every time he says to me, "I hate this Autism!" But when he was in junior high, he made it into the Symphonic Band, mastering the tuba, bringing people to tears, playing beautiful melodies (on a TUBA), and won the player of the year award. But he won't sing a note!
Not trying to hi-jack this thread, but I'm STILL AMAZED by REX.
I just found this video and I think this video might be one of the most interesting videos I've seen on the topic.
I myself have fallen prey to the assumption that autistic individuals of this next girls condition lack the ability to communicate effectively.
That's what makes this disease so troublesome. Same with some other mental conditions. Those who are affected have a limited ability to vocalize their experiences in a manner that we can understand.
This video is truly amazing. These are the type of occurrences that result in breakthroughs because the wealth of knowledge that this single person can provide is priceless.
