World Autism Awareness Day Tomorrow
Saturday is the fourth annual World Autism Awareness Day and in honor of the event many major landmarks across the country will be lit up in blue both tonight and tomorrow. This year’s theme is “Light It Up Blue” and just in time for the special day, a middle schooler is getting a lot of attention for writing a new song for World Autism Day. 11-year-old Owen Saunders recorded the song’s instrumentals on his home computer and his mom wrote the lyrics.
Owen recorded the song’s instrumentals on his home computer before heading to a recording studio where ten of his classmates helped lay down the vocals. Check out a sample of their recording:
They’ll be performing the song tomorrow in Manhattan on the deck of the USS Intrepid.
