Father of five J-Rock – also known as John Paul Horsley – was put in touch with Anna Kennedy, the founder of an autism charity, when one of his sons was diagnosed with autism. Horsley is now a patron of the Anna Kennedy Online charity.

J-Rock was a member of the MOBO-award-winning hip-hop group Big Brovaz. The charity single sees him producing and singing a version of his 2003 hit “Baby Boy”.

Kennedy is a campaigner for autism and has set up schools and colleges for autistic children and adults when there were once no provision. The charity, Anna Kennedy Online, stages an annual show “Autism’s Got Talent”.
