A Christmas song from the Cornish singer who can barely speak

Growing up with autism, Kyle Coleman could barely speak. But since finding his voice through singing, the man from Gwithian in Cornwall has been able to express himself through song.

Now Kyle, 30, has released a seasonal tune called Ho! Ho! It's Christmas with the aid of his singing teacher, Vikki St Leger. It's now six years since Kyle's mother Caroline first took him to musical therapy sessions - and since then he hasn't stopped

"Kyle is a non verbal autistic young man who is virtually unable to speak but he can sing beautifully. He was unable to speak up until his late teens and it was singing that opened the door and enabled him to communicate through music."
