WATCH: Non-verbal son rocking out at first ever festival shows the power of music

Sasha Brady

Three-year-old Jamie is non-verbal but he knows how to express his feelings through music.

The little boy couldn't hide his enjoyment as he attended a music festival with his family.

Jamie is sitting with his mother Vicci and brother Jake.

His dad Pete recorded a video of him rocking out to The Courteneers at Leeds Festival in the UK.

"He loves music," Pete told

"His favourites are Ozzy Osbourne, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Ferocious Dog and the Courteneers."

The youngster suffers from a condition known as global development delay, which causes setbacks in his cognitive and physical development.

"Due to his disability he's non-verbal, he only says 'Dad', 'Bab' (mum) and makes a noise for his brother. He uses about 20 Makaton Sign Language signs," said Pete.

But despite this, as you can see from the video, Jamie really feels a connection with music.

As dad Pete said: "It's a video that shows the power that music has to bring us all together."
