Yoo Ye-eun, the blind piano prodigy

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.

Prodigy: Yoo Ye-eun on the piano

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?

Just listen and looking at her playing makes me cry...not because i'm sad or feel sorry for her but because i'm so so proud of her. Such a talented and gifted kid.

I always remember when Heechul's waterworks exploded seeing this young Ye-eun. It was as though he had lost control and just could not stop himself. Kangin had to hold him because he was shaking. Somebody help this girl please!

I made a CD from clips of her on Star King. She's the sweetest little girl I've ever heard of. I would love for my wife and I to meet her one day in South Korea, just to see this true gift from god. I will be the first to line up to buy her CD.
