This is a really sweet story of a Frisco, Texas boy with autism. Normally Jack is nonverbal, his mom said in the video’s YouTube description that he would sing sometimes but it just sounded like random sounds and “verbal stims.”
“We heard our nonverbal autistic son saying or singing something repeatedly every day and we thought it was meaningless sounds. UNTIL one day (this morning) we really listened and figured out he was SINGING Katy Perry’s “Roar” song!” said Carla Robbins, Jack’s mom.
I agree, Jack, “Roar” is my favorite Katy Perry song, too. This is a lovely example of the therapeutic power of music.
