Rising Star and Autism Advocate Cory Singer Releases Heart-Wrenching Music Video for ‘Someone’
April 8, 2021 (Nashville, TN) – Last Friday, multi-talented indie artist Cory Singer released the video for his latest single, “Someone,” a song that addresses the challenge of finding true love. The music video premiered exclusively with People Magazine in observance of World Autism Awareness Day, an occasion near and dear to Singer, who is autistic himself. It is now posted to Singer’s VEVO channel. The corresponding single, which was released on March 12, can be found on all digital download and streaming platforms.

Not only is Singer a gifted musician and theater performer — he’s also a social media influencer. During the pandemic, the 26-year-old began posting and hosting livestreams on TikTok. He’s since established a significant following on the platform openly discussing his life with Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism spectrum disorder. His advocacy on behalf of the autistic community has been met with overwhelming support.
TikTok users’ remarkable response to his honest but typically lighthearted content encouraged Singer to pen “Someone” as a way to further connect with his growing fanbase. While just about everyone can relate to the trials and tribulations of searching for that special someone, Singer’s fans in the autistic community may identify with the song’s broader theme of longing to be understood and seen for who you are most of all. The plainspoken, emotion-filled ballad captures the innate human desire for a caring, accepting companion. Heartfelt and raw, Singer’s vocals allow the listener to glimpse into his personal thoughts and feelings. The gentle, organic production is fitting for a song that touches on the delicate, tender nature of the heart.
The accompanying video finds Singer dreaming of finding a relationship where he’ll be embraced for all aspects of his personality. Scenes depicting a couple who share this kind of coveted connection are interspersed with shots of the “Kandi Factory” winner singing his heart out. At the end of the video, we see Singer dressed to the nines with a rose in hand, waiting for his someone to arrive. If he is as sensitive and talented a guy as his performance in this video would indicate, Singer will not be waiting long.

Biography: New Jersey native Cory Singer is an accomplished singer-songwriter/musician and theater performer. Cory has performed in arenas before thousands nationwide. He starred on Bravo’s singing competition show “The Kandi Factory,” winning the grand prize: a song penned by Grammy-winning artist Kandi Burruss entitled “I Can Do Anything.” The emerging indie artist is also an exceptional songwriter in his own right. His original songs are in high demand. Country supergroup The Highway Women recorded his song “The Devil” in 2018.
Cory performs both acoustically and with his full band. He captivates his audiences no matter the venue or event. His single “Blind in Love” (the first of a six-song series) was released on July 20, 2018 to worldwide critical acclaim. His next release, “Everybody Sing,” a track produced in Memphis by Wes Edmonds (member of Wyclef Jean’s production team), came out on December 7, 2018. On April 13, 2019, he followed up with “Girl.” That year, Cory split his time between participating in the pre-production of several shows in New York and New Jersey and writing and recording new music.
Cory began his career in 2005 as a musical theater performer. Through 2013, he celebrated many achievements as an actor, including a 2011 NJ Perry Award Nomination for his role in “Seussical The Musical” (The Mayor) and a 2013 Broadway World nomination for Best Vocalist for his role in Joe DiPietro’s “The Last Romance” at the Bickford Theater. Cory re-entered the theater world in 2019 in the roles of Young Buddy in Westfield Community Players’ “Follies” in May and Matt Volpe in the award-winning original musical “They Call it Gravy, We Call it Sauce” with Music Jar Productions in October at the Bound Brook Theater.
In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Cory took to TikTok and decided to share his journey with autism. He has since become an influencer and an advocate for children, families and adults who are on the spectrum. He has used his platform to promote positivity by inspiring others with his unique brand of levity, coining the phrase ‘”People with Autism Have Superpowers.”
He will be releasing more new music in the coming months!
