Inspiration: Hi Hopes Band
The Hi Hopes Band is made up of individuals with developmental disabilities who have a "genius" for music. Many are considered musical savants. Included in the group are members with the following conditions: Down Syndrome, Autism, Williams Syndrome, Prader-Will Syndrome, Fragile X, PKU, and other intellectual disabilities. They perform almost any genre of music and have committed hundreds of songs to memory.
Check out their website Hope University and their YouTube videos.
