What inspired Mr. Shah to start this foundation that is centered around music is a visit from none other than Snoop Dogg, an international celebrity.

Though this dream has not been easy to achieve, Autism Rocks was officially founded in 2014. So many celebrities have supported his cause such as Prince, Lenny Kravitz, and even Elvis Costello. With their help, these world renowned individuals have raised millions of dollars of funds that has all been contributed towards the worthy cause of researching autism. Music has always brought his family together and is one of the few things that his young son has continuously shown a passion for. With the funds raised from these events, Mr. Shah wants to further research on a development disorder that is often misunderstood.
The mission behind the funding of the research is not to cure autism, but instead to understand the disorder.
