Today we're proud to be announcing that we have added the official music video for World Autism Awareness Week which can be enjoyed on the Big Screen daily.
The Beautiful Secret have released their first single named, 'What's Inside' which is out now and has been named the anthem of this year's World Autism Awareness Week which runs from March 27 through to April 2.
The pair, Rachael Hawnt and Ashley Cutler, will donate all proceeds from the single to The National Autistic Society to raise funds and increase awareness of the condition (which affects around 700,000 in the UK) and the work of the charity.
he song was inspired by Rachael’s niece Katie-Rae who has Asperger syndrome, a condition on the autism spectrum, and her views about the way she sees the world are reflected in the lyrics in this haunting, thought-provoking and ultimately uplifting composition.
Rachael said, “My beautiful niece Katie-Rae, who is now 16, has autism and learning difficulties and had many fears and phobias from the get-go. She has struggled with social situations and depression all of her life, but she is still a strong and loving person with a fantastic artistic flare and a big, big heart.”
“We wanted to write a song to help raise funds and awareness for autistic people. The first person I went to talk to was Katie-Rae; I told her I wanted to write about the way SHE felt, a real perspective from a real autistic child.”
World Autism Awareness Week is an annual event which encourages involvement from people in many ways, including charity night walks in London, Manchester and Bristol overnight on Saturday April 1.
‘What’s Inside’ is out now, with the album The Beautiful Secret to follow on March 24. Further information about WAAW is available at autism.org.uk/get-involved/world-autism-awareness-week.aspx
