WHEN singer-songwriter John St Peeters was approached to take part in a fund-raiser for the Liverpool-based Autism Advisory and Support Service, he didn't hesitate to sign up.
In fact, he's such a supporter of the group founded by Grace Fava that he's planned something special for the night.
It will be the first time he and wife, Teresa Vee, will perform together.
"An Italian Evening for Autism" will be held at Siena Events in Wetherill Park on Friday, October 25.
"It's the first time we've come together not just as husband and wife but as performers," St Peeters said.
He said the pair would also perform individually on the night.
On the list to be performed by Vee is In My World which St Peeters wrote with singer-songwriter Michael Yule.
"Teresa, my wife, has supported the Autism Advisory for quite a few years," St Peeters said.
"I wrote the song for her and for autism. It is a song basically to help raise awareness.
"It's one of these things where when you hear it, a lot of people get personal, because someone, somewhere has either a son, a daughter or a family member affected with autism.
"My wife does an incredible job vocally with the song because it obviously comes straight from the heart because she believes in the charity."
A CD and DVD pack of the song will be available and all proceeds will go to Autism Advisory and Support Service (AASS).
St Peeters is sure to perform his latest song, Legends of the Southern Land.
"It's all about Australians — not just the achievers but the people who run Australia and do the best for the country," St Peeters said.
"It's come about with projects like AASS, people that I admire so much, that do so much for this country and for people."
The Italian Evening for Autism is at Siena Events, 1345 The Horsley Drive, Wetherill Park, from 7pm on October 25.
