DALLAS- They say music is the way to the soul, it could also be a way to make a movement. Teen internet sensation and singer Case Walker is using his talent to help DFW kids with autism.

"Ever since I was little, I had the dream to reach out to a group of people and share a message  through entertainment and currently that dream is coming true through social media," Walker said.

The teen has a growing fan base and most recently achieved verified status on two major music apps, Musical.ly and Shimmur and is using them to help a worthwhile cause.

On Monday, Walker hosted a meet & greet and performed a song with fellow teen Shawn Piper. Piper is a 13-year-old from Frisco who, in addition to having autism, has recently released a single on iTunes to benefit music therapy.

"I found Shawn and at my event. He's gonna perform a song called Fight Song," he said.

Walker spoke to kids about the importance of being themselves and encouraged kids to be happy with their own gifts and talents.

The proceeds from Walker's meet & greet will go to Music Movement, to help Shawn's endeavors in music.
