Born with only four fingers and no legs below the knee, 20 year old Hee-ah Lee is an inspiration to all who know her. Although she began playing the piano at age 7 for therapeutical purposes, she has now become a concert pianist! Disfigured since birth, her mother cared for her as if she were perfect and today, she eats, walks and uses the adjusted piano pedals on her own. "You play with your heart and head--not your fingers," Hee-ah says.

    WOW! This is such an interesting and inspiring story. The video tells us that nothing is impossible if we are determined to make our dreams come true. She is a blessed one.

    hi dear you are amazing..your confidence had proved nothing is impossible..you are the luckiest person to have a such great mother..she loves you alot... keep going ahead..god bless you :)

  • Kelly Bliss

    This is an amazing woman, as is her mother. They are both inspirations. However, I was disturbed to see that her mother commented on her being fat! This is rediculous. I am appalled to see the Four Fingered Pianist is another casualty of the war on obese people. This horrible prejudice hurts both large and small alike.

  • Lisa

    I think her mother is trying to turn her into something she is not. it's great to see her determination and the mother's belief in her, but I think she needs to know that she is loved just the way she is whether she is a good musician or not. She is still loved! And I really commend the mother for loving her daughter and keeping her despite everyone else's discouragement! :)
