Country music star Josh Turner made the dream of a young musician with autism come true when he invited him to join him on stage at the Grand Ole Opry in a performance of his smash hit "Long Black Train."
"The song started gettin' played all around the country and started getting stories about how the song had affected them and changed their lives and even saved their lives" said Josh about the song. "And that was my introduction into just how powerful music can be."
Logan Blade was diagnosed with autism at two years old and could "barely even speak" growing up. Logan still struggles with having a true conversation but his family finds that he comes alive through song.
“I grant a lot of wishes for a lot of people in the way of what I do for a living," say Josh. "I’m definitely not taking all the credit for this young man and what he’s been able to do...music is what really changed him."
It has been Logan's dream to sing on stage at the Grand Ole Opry with Josh (his favorite musician) and sing "Long Black Train" which he says is one of his favorite songs.
They sing the song as a duet and Logan sings with such skill you wouldn't suspect his condition if you hadn't been told prior. The pair is met with a huge round of applause and even a standing ovation.
Watch the video below and witness the power music has and its ability to change lives before your very eyes.
