Bhatt Among Other Celebrities to Sign Guitars for Autism Speaks, in Support of Awareness and Funding for Leading Children’s Illness in America 


After presenting at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) rock star, television and movie personality Anand Bhatt signed five guitars to be donated for the children’s charity, Autism Speaks.  Bhatt, who is well known for both his musical and acting talents, signed the guitars alongside other celebrities including Adam Gaynor of Matchbox 20 and actor Eric Roberts of The Dark Night, The Expendables, and more, to support the charity.  


The HMMAs, which were held at The Highlands in Hollywood on Thursday, November 17th, recognized over 50 talented individuals responsible for creating, producing, and placing music in visual media. After lending his signature to several guitars, Bhatt was welcomed up on stage to present the awards for “Best Jazz Song,” “Best Latin Song,” “Best Metal Song,” and more. Distinguished honorees included Smokey Robinson, who was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award.


“I was thrilled to support a cause that supports an issue that so many parents and children deal with, and excited to be a part of an event surrounded by so much musical talent,” said Bhatt. 


Autism Speaks was founded in 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright to help fund the research, cause, prevention, treatment, and cure for Autism. Currently autism affects about one in every hundred American children, and the cause is still unknown.


This is not the first or only charity that Bhatt supports- he is also involved with other charities including the Simply Smiles Charity and David Lynch Foundation. For more information about Anand Bhatt please visit
