A 6-year-old piano prodigy is capturing hearts and minds thanks to viral videos of his performances online. Avett Ray Maness used his ears to teach himself how to master the ivory and ebony keys. Avett was born with optic nerve fibroplasia; he has never had the experience of vision. He does not let blindness hold him back!
"The moment he could pull himself to reach the piano, he was playing the melody to 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,'" said Avett Ray's mom, Sara Moore. "Music is in his body.”
