Theresa Noye said this about her faith and music and its relationship to her journey with autism.
Parenting a child with autism is a gift. This journey is teaching me to love. Laughter has been my medicine. My faith has challenged me to embrace community and believe that nothing is impossible for my child. Through music I’ve been able to express my fears, pains and longings to God. He responds back to me with a song. Songs that strengthen, encourage and inspire…reminding us that we are never alone; no never alone.Here is a video on YouTube of Theresa Noye singing the signature song You Saw Me from her debut album by the same name.
If you like the song You Saw Me, you can purchase it at iTunes or Amazon. According to her agent Gregory Greene, “All of the songs on Theresa’s music project “You Saw Me” were written or co-written by her. They represent times from her personal worship, drawing on her faith and her family’s journey through autism with her son – Regal. A portion of the proceeds from this project will benefit Regal’s Walk, a fundraising and awareness initiative for the support of Regal’s home therapy program and for educating families in the inner city.”
