Kerry's Korner theme song written and produced by Kyle Cousins.
“It’s like I don’t have autism when I’m on stage”. For Kyle, being on stage unleashes his boundless creativity and allows him a place where he can totally be himself and feel free of all rules. Offstage, Music has been a great gift to his life. He has been singing since childhood and music has also became a tool to unlock vocabulary. On discovering that he could write music during high school it literally opened a new world for him. It allowed him a way to express his feelings and insights about himself and others that had not been available to him before. Kyle says that what he loves about writing music is that “there are no rules”.
