Whether we are neurotypical or on the autism spectrum, music can speak to us in such powerful ways and capture emotions and feelings that words simply cannot express.
Blair is a young man on the severe end of the autism spectrum. One day, when he was walking with his parents in the city center of Glasgow, Scotland, he heard a cover of “Fix You” by Coldplay.
His reaction is beautiful and priceless—his face lights right up! According to his parents, any song by Coldplay puts a smile on his face. But this time, they managed to capture that special moment in a video.
Take a look!
Blair isn’t the only person on the spectrum that Coldplay has touched. Check out this sweet video of a boy in Mexico who was overcome with emotion when he saw his favorite band live. It’s truly no wonder the story went viral!
