This is the story of a little girl who was born with a gift. And she opened that gift early.

You could call her a piano prodigy, though the p word is never used in the her home.

Emily was discovered four years ago by her grandmothers, one of them a concert pianist, who’s made a career of teaching musically gifted children like Emily.

Four years ago, Emily’s mom and dad took a trip and left grandma in charge. She heard someone playing piano and thought it was the eldest child.

    To Steve Sanders, WGN News:
    Thank you thank you for your story on Miss Emily Bear. She is definitely the "FIREWORKS" in my 4th of July. Your reporting on Miss Bear filled me with joy. She is uplifting with her gift and you reported this wonderful pianist with grace and thoughtfulness. Thank you.
