Jersey native Tommy Byrne, enjoys writing music and wanted to write a song about his relationship with his cousin, Anthony Guerriero, who is on the autism spectrum. Byrne’s seven-year old Goddaughter Isabella became inspired to help Byrne write the song.
A few weeks after Bryrne and Isabella wrote the song “Unstoppable: A Song for Autism”. They performed it live together and the video went viral, was spreading all over social media. The video was picked up on the Facebook page called Power of Positivity. Their page features a host of positive videos and pictures that happen around the world, and how to promote positivity throughout our local communities.
New Jersey’s First Lady, Tammy Murphy, commented “Thank you so much for all that you are doing, I just wanted to say hats off to you.” It was an uplifting and inspiring moment when he wrote a song about someone he loves with autism. With the little help from Isabella, the song focused on what her brother loves which is Wildwood, the Beach, and Disney. Isabella thought adding her brothers favorite things would make the song all the more special for him.
The performance took place on Friday, February 9, 2018 at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Many locals came out and supported Tommy’s band during their performance. The proceeds from the show were donated to the Guerriero family that needed the funds to help with their son.
