Read about our guest below the video: 

 

Leah Riman is a Property Manager in the NYC area who holds a Master’s Degree in Audiology and whose dream was to earn her PhD in cochlear implantation when life took her in a very different direction. Her greatest achievement in life is her son Logan and proudly watches him accomplish what she was told he would never be able to accomplish. She is his greatest cheerleader, advocate, and supporter.

At the age of 19, Logan is a musical prodigy and has been playing the piano since the age of two. Born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate, microphthalmia, a rare eye condition in which a person is born without eyes, resulting in blindness, and other challenges. Logan’s whole world revolves around music and he plays everything from classical to show tunes to today’s greatest hits. Besides piano, Logan also plays the drums, and bass guitar and he tap dances. Logan has performed on some of the greatest stages in the world including Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, and Carnegie Hall- and as he says he’s just getting started. He is inspired by the powerful words of Helen Keller “the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched- they must be felt with the heart.” and also the words of Hans Christian Anderson, “where words fail, music speaks”. Recently graduating High School, he is currently trying to find a placement in a musical conservatory or program on a college level where he can continue to study what he loves – music.
