Chris Jasper: Inside of Me (I Strut for Autism)

Shefik presents Invocation

In support of World Autism Awareness Day (April 2, 2020), media personality Shefik joined forces with Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner Chris Jasper for a powerful autism awareness campaign. It includes a star-studded music video for Jasper's song "Inside of Me". The music video was produced and directed by Shefik, under his brand "Shefik presents Invocation". Almost 100 recording artists, Broadway stars, actors, authors, fashion designers, models, and even members of royal families came together for this video.

If you are familiar with The Isley Brothers, then you know Jasper, who was an integral member of the group during the 1970s and 1980s — their gold and platinum years.

Proceeds from the "I Strut for Autism" campaign benefit the Morgan Marie Michael Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
