Derek’s got talent – a profoundly abled musician

31 year old pom Derek Paravicini is profoundly abled.

Sure, he can’t do up buttons on his shirt, doesn’t know how old he is, and has been blind since birth.

But he can play the piano beautifully – and he can play any song he has ever heard, in any key, in any style.

Derek took up the piano aged 3, and has been performing internationally since he was very young.

CBS 60 minutes had this story on his immense musicality.
