Baby Boy

Charity single release for World Autism Awareness week 2018

Baby Boy Charity single – now on sale!

J-Rock from MOBO award winning R&B and hip hop music group Big Brovas has announced his first ever charity single. He is singing a reproduced version of his 2003 hit Baby Boy’ alongside 7 other artists all of whom have autism making this single totally unique and poignant. Father of 5 J-Rock was put in touch with Anna Kennedy OBE founder of autism charity Anna Kennedy Online when one of his sons was diagnosed with autism and is now a Patron of the charity.

Anna is a campaigner for autism and set up schools and colleges all over the country for autistic children and adults when there were once no provisions provided.She has many bows to her string but her most well known one is annual show ‘Autism’s Got Talent’ which provides an opportunity for people with autism to showcase their talent and gives them a platform to go on to do many more amazing things.
The idea to reproduce Baby Boy was born after the charity launched their first album by seven performers that Anna chose from past shows. It was launched February 20th 2017 at none other than London’s Hard Rock Cafe and received wonderful reviews.This single is not just about the music though.
Fed up with negativity surrounding autism, Anna wanted to show that these performers are not second class citizens and they want to make their mark in the world just like everyone else.
All seven performers have had daily struggles in life, whether it be through being bullied, anxieties, mental health issues, yet here they were pushing through those struggles and engaging with each other, and having lots of fun, recording and filming. They want to be accepted in society and Anna and the performers hope that by purchasing this single more opportunities like this can be created for lots more people with autism.
