When I walked into the Pinecrest Whole Foods (11701 South Dixie Highway, Miami) on a recent Saturday afternoon, I heard a Thelonious Monk tune coming out of a live piano. A tear formed in my eye, as I watched blind pianist extraordinaire, Marty Forster hammer the keys. In the above video Marty tells us about his blindness, his 16 years of classical piano studies, and how he has been performing at Whole Foods for the past four years. I learned so much while talking with Marty, and I hope that this episode of Prunk TV makes you realize how fantastic life is. Don't take a single moment for granted and go check it out. Marty performs at the above Whole Foods location every Wednesday evening from 5 - 7 p.m. and every Saturday from noon - 3 p.m. Have a cup of organic coffee and chill for a bit. See ya.
