Capitol Records Tower will Light It Up Blue for autism awareness

February 16, 2016


The Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles, California, will Light It Up Blue on April 2, 2016 in honor of World Autism Awareness Day!

A Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, the building starting construction in 1955 after the British Company EMI (Electrical and Musical Industries) acquired Capitol Records that the building was named after. The building was later completed in April of 1956 at thirteen-stories high.

Many people today refer to the tower as “The House That Nat Built” due to the amount of records and merchandise that jazz pianist Nat King Cole sold for them. Capitol Records today has signed hundreds of today’s top music artists including Katy Perry, Neil Diamond, Faith Evans, Fat Joe and many more!

Capitol Music Group shared with Autism Speaks that in addition to lighting the tower blue on April 2nd they will also light the building up on the start of Autism Awareness Month on Friday April 1st and the day after World Autism Awareness Day on Sunday. 

Join Light It Up Blue and pledge to wear blue or light your home or business blue!
