Members of “Magic Makers” perform at a special needs performance of the Jungle Book at the Mexican Heritage plaza in San Jose Saturday Mar. 6, 2010. From left are, Lawrence Wong, 20, Bernard Smith, 23, Chiling Wu, 19, and Anthony Nakamoto, 16. These teens aren’t just any rock stars. They’re autistic and they play music pretty well without even practicing. Their mothers call them “music savants” who simply listen to a song on YouTube and then play it, to the standing ovations of their friends and families, some of whom doubted these kids would ever fit in normally.
