Blind Savant Musician
We've heard these stories before but they still never seize
to amaze. This is a clip of Leslie Lemke, a blind American
autistic savant who is most notable for his work as a musician.
He was adopted by May Lemke (who passed away
in 1993) when he was six
months old. He started playing piano at 16.
Stick around or jump to the end to hear him
sing the final chorus of "You Light Up My Life" -
The brain is a strange piece of machinery.
