ABC GMA presents band "Flame" comprising disabled musicians
ABC Good Morning America presented a music band from upstate New York, “Flame”. The news story by Mary Pflum and Suzan Clarke is “Flame's Members Say Disabilities Won't Stop Band From Making Music: N.Y. Band Members Live With Blindness, Autism, Down Syndrome”, link here. There is a video in which the band plays, here (ABC doesn’t seem to give out embed code). The website for the group is “Flametheband” here (flameband.com is a band in Russia). The main website has a link on the right to its promotional video as a WMV file that will bring up Windows Media Player.
Flame is said to be the only touring band in the world to consist entirely of disabled members.
