Let Me Shine: A Video

What do you get when you combine the talented, autistic teenagers living at Prior’s Court in Hermitage, Berkshire, U.K., the band Low Island, and a very catchy song? You get goodness. Pure goodness.

Low Island’s drummer, Tomson Chauke, works at Prior’s Court and wanted to showcase the wonderful relationship between the staff and residents, most of whom are non-verbal and spent months learning the song’s lyrics.

Tomson explained, “It started with a member of staff being inspired by the engagement and enjoyment that our young people, who are severely challenged by their autism, have with music…. We are proud of the song and the way in which it celebrates the uniqueness of our young people and how, when given the chance, they shine.”

Turn it up. Way up.
