OAK CREEK-Just as word was coming to light about pop star Susan Boyle being diagnosed with autism, Oak Creek singer Eric Look is out with his own personal story about his life with autism.

The 25 year old Look was diagnosed with classic autism at age 3. Now at 25, he is well on his way to launching a career in music.

His holiday song "This Christmas Day" is getting air play on radio in Milwaukee, Chicago and Philadelphia.

Just days after Look spoke with CBS 58 News came word that "Britain's Got Talent" singer Susan Boyle was finally diagnosed with a form of autism after being told all her life it was brain damage.

It got us thinking how music plays a role in the lives of those with autism.

Here's an in depth look from Eric Look and his family that aired recently "on Eye to Eye."
