Blind Boy with Autism Sings Heartwarming Song

My grandparents recently brought this inspiring video to my attention.  This ten year old has autism and is blind.  I cannot begin to imagine how he views the world.  Despite his challenges, rocking on stage while he is introduced, this boy sings an inspiring song, bringing light to the fact that those on the autism spectrum can accomplish extraordinary achievements under the right conditions. Things that people off the spectrum can accomplish only through years of study and hard work.  There are two sides to every coin.  This boy might live in a dark world that is dictated by his senses.  Try listening to that song with your eyes closed.  Would you be able to tell that he has autism based on the way he sings?
