Here’s a touching and inspiring story for all our readers.
Blind since birth, 5-year-old Yoo Ye-eun appeared on Star King – a Korean talent competition show – in March 2007.
The little angel has not received any formal piano lessons, but has the gift to play-by-ear after listening to a song once.
She started tinkling the ivories when she was three, after listening to her Mother sing. Since then, she has only been “learning” music through the computer.
Yoo Ye-eun’s performance during Star King (sorry, but video has been removed by Coolsmurf) left many teary-eyed as she deftly moved her fingers over the piano keys, and amazingly hit the right notes – all this without the sense of sight!
It is also revealed that Ye-eun is an adoptee. Oh, she sings AND plays the piano at the same time too! Now, how’s that for talent?
