Band With Members On The Autism Spectrum Wows On The Kelly Clarkson Show

This is a heartwarming reminder to love people well. Band with members on the autism spectrum wows on The Kelly Clarkson Show. 

Kelly so kindly welcomes this sweet group of young people who are known as the ASD Band. The lead singer is very sweet and tells Kelly that she was her biggest inspiration growing up and that she sang “Breakaway” for her 3rd-grade talent show. 

As the band is being introduced, each band member has a fun personality. The band director plays the bass for them. The lead singer shares that he helps them elevate the songs. Kelly says that she has a band director, too. 

The lead singer shares that being on the spectrum helps her become a stronger musician. Jackson the drummer says that playing drums helps to focus his brain. It is “stimming” for him. The band director shares how renewing it has been to be in this band. They do not argue. They understand each other and work together as a team. 

Their new album is called “Almost Flawless.” The ASD Band writes their own songs. After the interview, the ASD Band performed one of their songs called “Fireflies.” The lyrics say, “We’re different but not less.” It is an encouraging message to anyone on the spectrum or living around others on the spectrum in their families or communities. 

We, as the body of Christ, are called to love all people in the name of Jesus. This includes those on the Autism Spectrum. This interview and song remind us that all people are made in the image of God. We are all in a broken world and everyone has different challenges and giftings. No matter what we face, or what others around us face, we can invite the gospel of Jesus into our day to day. We can love people with autism.

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27
