World Autism Awareness Day - Charity Release of Prior’s Court “Let Me Shine”

The Prior’s Court Foundation is a charity managing a specialist residential school, young adult provision and a training and development centre, supporting young people aged 5-25 who are severely affected by autism.

In support of World Autism Awareness Day Prior’s Court and electronic four piece Low Island have released “Let Me Shine”, a single featuring young people from Prior’s Court, to help challenge the current perception of autism.

The young people at Prior’s Court face immense challenges as a result of their autism and this song and video are a testament to their achievements.

Universal Music – who generously support the EMI Music Sound Foundation - advised the school on the set up of the release while support and distribution was kindly donated by the philanthropic team at Spinnup, a digital distribution platform for unsigned artists. The school have had an amazing response to the song and reached nearly 2.7 million impressions in just 24 hours, with an overwhelming number of comments on Facebook about how inspirational and moving the video and single are.
