It seems so far to reach
and feels more like tar
on your hands
As night upons us my
sight on the sky All
I do is wonder
I know that one day
I say that whatever
my wish is it will come
Soon, I could and would
move on to the other side
knowing that it all came true

Colin came into the world on July 5th, 2002.
Colin is 8 years old and is Autistic, (high functioning) He was singing before he could talk. His parents have VHS movies of him singing full songs by the Care Bears when he was only 4 years old! He was born and raised in Oakville, Ontario Canada. His current favourite artists are Justin Bieber, Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Hedley, Kesha, Sarah Mclachlan, Nikki Yanofsky, and K’naan. Colin had to have extensive speech therapy to talk in full sentences, but NEVER had to have any therapy to sing! He just cannot help himself. Whenever he hears a song, he has to sing it loud! His autism gives him some special abilities. He can listen to a song that he likes a lot and memorize all the words in a very short time. He can remember the song months later like he just heard it yesterday. His Autism also gives him perfect pitch on so many songs that have high pitch notes. He has been singing “professionally” only for a few months now and he is really enjoying it, especially when he goes to the recording studio. He does have one original song which his father wrote for him for an America’s Got Talent video contest, but there is no actual music to it yet, (working on that). He was one of the top ten finalists in the Nationwide Teletoon Network television Karaoke contest. While he did not win that contest because he did not get enough mouse clicks from the public, he did win in raw talent. The Contest Director was cheering him to win! Currently, Colin is singing in the prestigious Oakville Children’s Choir and singing, dancing and acting with the equally prestigious Oakville Children’s Music Theatre. Colin was asked by the owner/DJ of an internet radio station in Arkansas USA, (KXBG with over 35,000 listeners) to send him a CD of his songs after hearing him on You-Tube and Facebook. During the first week that Colin’s songs were being played Monday through Friday at 3:58 p.m., he charted on their Top 40 chart with him reaching #15 for his Baby song and #17 for his I Believe song. Two weeks later, his One Time song charted at number 24! Given that Colin just turned 8 years old and he has not had any formal vocal training yet, the sky is the limit!
Colin has recorded 6 cover songs at River 16 Studio’s here in Oakville. They are:
I got a Feeling (Originally by The Black Eyed Peas)
Party in the USA (Originally by Miley Cyrus)
Eenie Meenie (Originally by Justin Bieber and Sean Kingston)
Baby (Originally by Justin Bieber)
One Time (Originally by Justin Bieber)
I believe (Originally by Nikki Yanofsky)
He has one original song called…”I’m Awake Now” His parents are saving up their money to try to get some music to go along with it, hopefully soon!
