Marcus Roberts: A Piano Virtuoso

It takes a lot of talent to learn to play an instrument. Marcus Roberts proves that his disability does not interfere with his impeccable skills to play the piano.

Roberts lost his vision when he was five years old. His parents allowed him to learn to play the instrument. He received formal training at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind.

Roberts had the opportunity to play for legendary musicians like Wynton Marsalis. In the 60 Minutes video below, Marsalis interviews the talented piano player.

Roberts finds a unique kinship to Stevie Wonder. Both of these musicians haven’t let their blindness interfere with their love of music!
