 Q: Who influenced you to be a musician?
 A: "My blind Grandpa. When I was 8 yrs old, I had a toy keyboard (piece of crap). One day my grandpa came to my house. He was a musician so he showed me how to play 'Happy Birthday' on it. Later I played it at my grandma's 85th birthday party (a huge event). After playing it in front of a large group of people, I got this huge applause. That's when I knew that playing music was for me."
