3:34pm 9th March 2012

A Cornish man who has barely able to say more than a few words his whole life is releasing an album.

Twenty-five year old Kyle Coleman from Gwithian suffers from a severe form of autism.

After going to music therapy sessions, the twenty-five year old discovered a talent for singing.

The album 'Therefore I Am' contains covers of songs by Robbie Williams and Razorlight, as well as original song, 'Just Listen'.

Listen to Kyle singing 'Just Listen': 

 
Kyle's mum Caroline says it has been a complete shock: "I'm still in awe of it, I think. I still don't think I've taken on board how good he is. I think it's the fact that other people think he's good as well, and that's that's what's surprised me more than anything. I thought it was just me being a proud mum.

"You can't really have a conversation with Kyle, you know it's all through his music, or he will copy what you say but it doesn't have any comprehension behind it, so for somebody who is virtually non-verbal, it is the first of its kind."

The money raised from the album will go towards the National Autistic Society and other charities.
