In hopes to help find a lost autistic boy, R&B crooner Bilal went to Twitter to spread the word. As a parent of an Autistic child, he has been active in spreading awareness about autism.
Avonte Oquendo is the fourteen year old boy authorities are attempting to discover. The Queens, New York, native went missing from Riverview School on October 4th, 2013. If you have any information or resources to help, visit http://www.gofundme.com/findavonte
On his latest album "Airtight's Revenge," Bilal recorded the inspirational song "Little One," an ode dedicated to his oldest son, which Autism Speaks uses in their campaigns.
