Blind, Autistic Piano Prodigy Inspires Others
A young man who was born blind and autistic found his voice through music. He now helps others find their voices.
Rex and Friends kicks off this weekend with a live concert to raise funds for music education for the autistic and blind.
The driving force behind this event is Cathleen Lewis, whose son Rex Lewis-Clack, was born 18 years ago blind and autistic in an isolated world until he discovered the piano.
“We’re doing it to help out a group of people that need music in their lives,” Cathleen said. “This is, I believe, a population that needs it as sort of a bridge to life.”
Rex creates medleys many might not dare to.
“A little John Lennon, a little Louis Armstrong, and I throw Mozart in the middle,” Rex said.
Famed concert pianist and composer Gabriela Montero is a friend of Rex. She’s known for improvising. She and Rex will showcase their talent together.
