Light Up the Blues, a documentary-style film recorded at last year’s concert to benefit Autism Speaks is available now through iTunes.
The film captures an inspired evening of music emceed by Jack Black and featuring musical guests Crosby, Stills and Nash, Rickie Lee Jones, Lucinda Williams, Don Felder, Chris Stills, and three gifted, budding musicians who are on the Autism Spectrum.
Executive Director of Southern California for Autism Speaks Matthew Asner states, “We are so proud to have been involved in this magic evening and are ecstatic that the evening’s magic has been captured so beautifully in this wonderful film.”
The film includes interview footage peppered with spontaneous backstage moments that give a realistic and touching look at the challenges presented by autism, as well as the tremendous hope and inspiration given to so many by individuals with Autism pursuing their dreams. All net proceeds from the film will benefit Autism Speaks.
