'Mute' autistic man trapped in a world of silence stuns experts with his amazing singing voice
- Kyle has only ever said a handful of words
- His personality and emotion shine through in his singing, says mother
A man with autism that has rendered him almost mute is about to release an album after he was found to have perfect pitch and an amazing singing voice.
Kyle Coleman, 25, from Gwithian, Cornwall, was diagnosed with autism at the age of three and has only ever been able to say a few words.
However, his talent was discovered after his mother Caroline took him to a music therapy session in 2009...
Kyle has recorded nine covers - including songs by Robbie Williams, Cat Stevens and Razorlight - plus one that was written especially for him about autism. The album is being supported by the National Autistic Society (NAS) and will be released to coincide with World Autism Day.
The album, Kyle, Therefore I Am, will be available on Amazon and iTunes on April 2 and any money raised will go to NAS and other charities.
