Autistic Boy Plays Piano Man
On another matter, for the last few years my wife, a very good singer, has entered "moms that rock" in Vermont, a contest among about 20-25 entrants, with 3 winners, with prizes maybe worth $100 each, though I can't even remember what they were. They band puts out the list of songs one can choose from, and every year someone places with "Proud Mary". Year 1, my wife did "Walking on Sunshine", which she didn't really like, but what the heck. Year 2, she chose her own song, and the band liked the choice so much, they let her do it, Lucinda Williams', "I changed the locks on my front door." She should have won, but alas, no. The next year, she picked her own again, Brandi Carlile's, "The Story", and she won. Rules have it that when you win, you can't compete the next year, but this year's she's back. Undecided what she'll sing, she's been looking at/practicing a Beach Boys song, "God Only Knows What I'd Be Without You." Anyway, she found this version, which we both thought was awesome. Elton John recently assisted Leon Russell, toured with him, and presented for him and played with him at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Here's his tribute to Brian Williams. Not sure my wife will do this, but this is what many feel is Brian Williams most beautiful song.
