Meet Derek. The Most Amazing Piano Player You’ll Ever See Or Hear!

Born three months premature with severe cognitive disabilities and blindness, Derek Paravicini has grown into a musical savant. After hearing a song just once, he can play it in any key and any style instantly. And instead of being shy and reclusive, he loves being around people. He thrives on communication, whether it is through music or by simple conversation. He even improvises a Boogie-Woogie theme for 60 Minutes. Truly, a gift for the world and a shining example of the tremendous power of music!
