Music Therapy Reveals Beautiful Voice in Mute Man With Autism

At age three, Kyle Coleman was diagnosed with autism. He was unable to communicate with more than a few words until he was 20, when his mother took him to a music-therapy session. Suddenly Kyle came to life, able to express his personality and emotions through instruments and voice.

“It is when he sings . . . that his songs come to life.. . . . [T]his has made it possible for us to develop a special relationship and for Kyle’s abilities and confidence to soar,” says music therapist Carine Kelley, who visits Kyle in his home twice a week.

Read more about Kyle’s amazing gift and his debut charity album that will be available on World Autism Awareness Day (April 2).
