Being autistic comes with hardships. Some people suffer from things like depression, social anxiety disorder, or generalized anxiety disorder. Though these disorders can be unfortunate to those who have autism, there are ways through it. 10-year-old Calum Courtney has autism, but he does not let it stop him from doing what he loves. Calum was in the grocery store ASDA raising money for Basildon MIND, when he started singing. The young boy covered a terrific version of Smokey Robinson’s Who’s Lovin You, and he gained confidence and fans. His mother, Tupney explained to Dailymail that, “Calum has high functioning autism - for him this means blurred social boundaries, struggles with school and difficulties with friendships, but also that enables him to have no fear to get up and belt out a song.”
