Radlett Rappers wow judges at Autism's Got Talent contest
Pupils from a school in Radlett rapped their way to success in Autism’s Got Talent.
Alan Johnson, 14, Ciaran Fox, 13, Ahmed Mitten, 15, and Jonathan Senga, 15, from Radlett Lodge School performed as the "Radlett Rappers" in the competition.
The contest was set up by Anna Kennedy, who has founded several schools for children on the autism spectrum, to showcase the "diverse and superb talents" of people with the disorder.
Heather Mobbs, a teacher at Radlett Lodge school, said: "Alan is very good at organising them and taking the lead. He has a lot of useful suggestions on how to improve the performance and he is excellent at helping them to feel relaxed and less nervous."
Ciaran said: "I entered because it sounded really fun. I enjoy performing because I get to do things with my friends."
Jonathan said: "I entered because it can change my life by making me more confident. I like performing because it makes me feel good about myself."
The competition took place at The Mermaid Theatre in London last Saturday.
