(Nashville, Tenn. – Sept. 5, 2014) Streamsound Records’ country star Austin Webb is hosting an intimate concert via StageIt to benefit Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization.

The "Raise 'Em Up" singer shares why Autism Speaks is special to him explaining, "One of my many jobs growing up was doing carpet cleaning. I was sent out to clean the carpet of this one house…and that is where I had my first encounter with an autistic child. I never felt she was ill, I just felt she was special and misunderstood. From that day on I wanted to help autistic children."
Fans are encouraged to pay what they can, with all proceeds to go towards Autism Speaks’ research and advocacy efforts for families and individuals impacted by the disorder. Tickets can be purchases until show time, but fans are encouraged to RSVP for the 30-minute benefit concert here. Special prizes will be on hand for the top tippers of the night.
This marks the second time Webb has joined forces with Autism Speaks to show his support in the fight against autism. Last October, Webb performed during Autism Sings!, a benefit concert that took place at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville in Nashville, TN.
