A talented little girl

I'm so glad that I found this clip over at JMG.

I saw Ellen interview 7 year old piano prodigy, Emily Bear, a few days ago. Not only is the girl incredibly cute and able to joke about breaking her nose twice over the course of a few weeks, but watching the ease at which she plays the piano is just amazing to me. She has been playing since she was 3 and has composed over 120 songs.

One of those original compositions is the song that she plays for Ellen, called Once Upon a Wish. She tells Ellen "I wrote it as a gift for your wedding...cause you got your wish."

The song is beautiful and you can tell that Ellen was very moved.

You can get Emily's CD here.
