Hee Ah Lee

Have You Heard Hee Ah Lee?

This is an amazing story about a Korean pianist. She is twenty years old. At the beginning of the clip, she plays Chopin's Ballade in G Minor beautifully. She has no legs below the knee. And only two fingers on each hand.

It takes ten minutes, but this video is worth the watch. Tell ya, it gives me hope! (Amazing what hard work and determination can do!)

(Note: While updating this post on my new domain, I couldn’t find the original video on YouTube. This one is only 2 minutes long with a bit of backstory.)

Edit: My college buddy Frank, pianist extraordinaire, has corrected me: She is not playing the Ballade, but is actually playing Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu. At least I got the Chopin part right!
