Musical Performance by: Brittany Maier
Brittany Maier was born in April of 1989. Premature by four months, she weighed a pound and five ounces. Even though she was diagnosed blind, autistic, and mentally disabled, Brittany Maier’s amazing musical talent surfaced when she began playing Schubert’s Ave Maria on a toy piano at age six. Able to duplicate a song after having just heard it a few times, Brittany Maier memorized music with no limit to style, instrument, or language it was recorded in. At age ten, after receiving formal music instruction at The University of South Carolina’s School of Music, Brittany began composing her own original songs and she released her first album “20/20” when she was just twelve years old
Brittany Maier’s second CD, titled “A World of My Own,” was released through Barnes & Noble stores nationwide in America in 2006. In 2007 her music grew to a worldwide audience when she appeared on German television for Die Show Der Merkwurdigkeiten (“Show of Miracles”). Headlines from newspapers called her “A Gift from God” and “A Musical Miracle” and those thoughts are echoed daily by her fans.
