Blind Musician Recovers From Quake, Plays With Help From Stevie Wonder

Concert violinist Romel Joseph lay buried under the rubble of his music school mentally running through all the concertos he had ever played before being rescued after 18 hours. The musician, who is legally blind, had asked for a keyboard to help strengthen his fingers during his hospital stay.

After the request was aired on CNN, musician Stevie Wonder offered to provide Joseph with a special gift.
