Spectrum organisers said: "Daniel, who describes himself as a singer songwriter with autism, is an inspirational performer who is forging a new path through the music scene in the UK and portrays a much-needed positive image of learning-disabled people in the media.

"His popularity in mainstream culture is partly due to his show-stealing appearances on Channel 4’s hit TV programme The Undateables. He has featured on the show more than any other person they have filmed to date."
