A PORTION OF THE SALES WILL BE DONATED TO AUTISM UNITES
THE REASON FOR THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN PAUL D'ADAMO AND AUTISM UNITES?
Paul tells us best in his own words:
Shortly after I opened the D'Adamo School of Performing Arts in 2002, I was asked by a parent of 2 children with autism to teach them music. One was non-verbal and loved listening to music. Constantly. I had no previous experience working with children or adults with special needs, just a love of performing, recording, and teaching music. But my experience working with these 2 children changed my life and changed it for the better.
In my years of teaching, my students on the autism spectrum have taught me much more than I have ever taught them. Nothing is more satisfying than hearing a parent say "You are my child's favorite teacher" and "Thank you for being so patient with our son when others were not."
As a signed recording artist, let me tell you ... these comments are worth more to me than any Grammy or platinum album that I could ever hope to be awarded in my career.
So why did I choose to support Autism Unites? It's very simple. This organization is run with such tenderness and compassion, doing what's best to make us all more socially aware of the indifference that these precious human beings often experience.
This project also gave me the opportunity to work with a great musician & actor, Lee Curreri aka "Bruno Martelli" of the original hit movie and TV Series FAME. He's an amazing songwriter and producer, and it was an honor to collaborate with him on this project.

Thank you for your support!
