Autistic Man Stuns Family By Singing and Then Recording an Album. THIS IS F**KING AWESOME!

When he was three years old, Kyle Coleman was diagnosed with autism. He stopped talking.  No one can remember him ever speaking a complete sentence.  The only thing that seemed to connect with him was music.

He was able to sing along to his favourite music for a while, but by age six that ended, too, and he remained a virtual mute until his mid-20s.

But that’s when his mom took him for music therapy.  Not only did the singing start again, but it wouldn’t stop.  And now Kyle has a full album of original material he calls Beyond the Syntax.  Check out this sample. It’s…amazing.

This is so f**king good! It’s a f**king hit!

    What! No comments? Huh. Well, I just wanted to say that music itself is truly an amazing thing. Whether you are autistic or not, everyone responds to music. Even babies in the womb react to it. When my mother was way past being able to speak due to Alzheimer’s, my aunt would play the piano while my mother sat in a chair nearby. It was the only time we would see her smile or seem relaxed and happy, more like her old self. If you are around Alzheimer’s patients at all, you know that they can be very anxious, confused and even angry. Music really calmed my mother. I really believe she not only enjoyed hearing the music, but that it was the only thing that really helped.
