Scott James

Autism Light Classic
Updated on April 4, 2013.

Autism Light #30 is Scott James.

Scott James has the form of autism known as Asperger's Syndrome. He is an extraordinary musician from Stockton-on-Tees, England. Scott James is an Autism Light because of his musical ability that he uses to bring awareness to Autism.  He is a role model to all those with autism.

His autism created such a disability for him that for seven years he would not leave his home outside of school. All that has changed though as he has taken his wonderful voice out to the public. Mike Frankland of England's music industry said about Scott James, "He is stunningly good. No mater what you give him he can sing it."

Here is a glimpse at Scott James work through the years.


Take a Ride on the Sun: Scott James released a preview of a new song in March, 2013 called Take a Ride on the Sun. 


Autism's Got Talent 2012: Scott James participated along with several other fine musicians in Autism's Got Talent in 2012. 


World Autism Awareness Day 2011: Scott James sang the theme song for World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, 2011, called Through My Eyes, which is written from the perspective of someone with autism explaining to others what their life is like. Valerie Foley originally wrote the song. Listen to this touching song below on YouTube.

Please consider purchasing his single Through My Eyes from www.scottjames.org.  Scott James has designated proceeds from the single to go to the Daisy Chain Project, a charity in England that helps families with autism. It is available for purchase on ITunes and Amazon as well.
Britain's X-Factor: Scott James participated and made it to the final 50 of Britain's X-Factor show in 2009. When Scott James was asked about his appearance on the X-Factor in 2009, he said, "I'm proud to be autistic. I've met some incredible people with autism. I want to show the world that we can make a success of our lives (Source)." On the X-Factor (2009) Scott James wowed the world with his version of the Westlife hit You Raise Me Up. Below is the video of part of that performance from YouTube.
