Brianna Kahane, Violin Prodigy, Raises Money For Haiti At Age Eight

One of eight-year-old Brianna Kahane's favorite violinists, Romel Joseph, was trapped under rubble in Port-au-Prince for 18 hours following the 7.0 earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12, 2010. Most eight-year-olds don't have a "favorite violinist," but Brianna is a violin prodigy herself, and nobody expects her incredible performance with the instrument.

Now, Brianna is telling Joseph's story, and using her talent to raise money to rebuild his art school that was destroyed in the quake.
