Announcing the Autism Hero finalists 2019!!!

Anna Kennedy Online Charity and Judging panel are proud to announce the finalists for the Autism Hero Awards 2019, congratulations!

Our judges had a really tough time selecting the finalists this year, as so many people give so much time to help the lives of others. It was hard to choose finalists because they are all so deserving.

The Autism Community therefore has so much to give to society of large and they are all winners!

Special message from Dr Anna Kennedy OBE:
“Together with my team we want to celebrate the unforgotten heroes that go the extra mile and make life changing steps that impact and improve the quality of life for autistic individuals and the lives of their families.There will also be a Special Recognition Award and Charity Volunteer of the Year which will be announced on the night. I look forward to meeting you and congratulations for being a finalist”

Acts will be travelling from all over the UK, which not only proves how popular Autism’s Got Talent is becoming, but how important a platform such as this one is to those on the spectrum.
 
“It is extremely important that people with autism have an outlet. Autism’s Got Talent is a safe and secure environment where those who want to, can express and perform without fear of being judged or criticised. Autism’s Got Talent is one of a kind, and is extremely poignant to those with autism and their families. Those involved can have fun, do what they love, make friends and be themselves, and have one night which is all about them.”
 
Autism’s Got Talent, which is a red carpet event, is a celebration of everyone on the autism spectrum and everyone in attendance will be guests of honour and treated like VIPs. We love to showcase a huge variety of performers that are out there and this year is no exception. 

Autism’s Got Talent Highlights to be Shown on Katie Price’s Show

Autism’s Got Talent Highlights to be Shown on Katie Price’s Show

On Monday next week, 22nd July at 1 pm Katie Price will be sharing some highlights from Autism’s Got Talent on her Quest Red TV show ‘Katie Price: My Crazy Life‘.

At the London show Katie and her son Harvey presented one of the acts, and Harvey shouted out words of encouragement to the performers. Harvey was so taken with the show that Katie sent in his audition of Harvey playing the organ. Harvey then showcased his talent and performed ‘Over the Rainbow’ and ‘ When the Saints Come Marching In’ for the recent Autism’s Got Talent St Ives Roadshow.

The audience gave Harvey a standing ovation, with Harvey’s sister Princess in attendance to support her brother. Harvey thanked the audience and was appreciative of the applause and his certificate of participation.

Autism’s Got Talent has a unique format: it does not hold auditions, instead it aims to boost participants’ confidence by shining a spotlight on their individual strengths. The show was founded in 2012 by Anna Kennedy OBE, ambassador for Options Autism, one of the key part sponsors of the event, who provides care and education to children, young people and adults with autism.

CEO of Options Autism, Graham Baker, was delighted to be supporting the show for the third year running. Graham shares: ‘AGT provides an amazing – and incredibly moving – opportunity for those with autism to shine and celebrate success. Recognising and nurturing the unique strengths of individuals is key to unlocking their potential and we are proud to support this leading charity and autism event.’

Previous AGT stars include the dance group Autism with Attitude, who recently appeared on BBC One’s hit show The Greatest Dancer.

Anna and her team took the show to St Ives and the audience were treated to a dazzling array of live performances, including 23-year-old singer Charlotte Fieldson, who was non-verbal until the age of five when she started to sing along to ‘Sleeping Beauty’. Local magician Jono Blythe also wowed audiences with the help of his glamorous volunteer Katie Price, who travelled down to Cornwall to support her son Harvey as he made his debut performance in the show.

Harvey – who has severe autism, a rare complex genetic condition called Prader-Willi Syndrome and is partially blind – has been playing the keyboard since the age of four. He performed two songs at the event, footage of which will be shared on Katie Price’s latest TV show this summer.

Anna Kennedy OBE, a passionate advocate and campaigner for individuals and families affected by autism for over 20 years, reflected on the night, saying: ‘This year’s Autism’s Got Talent has been another smash hit, packed with some of our most exciting talent yet. We’ve been blown away by the amount of positive feedback from both press and families and are hugely proud of all of our performers.

‘AGT is a life changing experience and it has been a privilege to watch our performers gain confidence and self-belief. We’re looking forward to celebrating our next roadshow on 12th October at the Winston Churchill Theatre in Ruislip.’
