According to the Census Bureau, the percentage of the U.S. population that lives to be 101 years old or older is just 0.03% of the total population, or about 95,000. So it’s great to get to see one of that very small minority fulfill one of her dreams. And it’s even better when it involves a five-year-old boy.
The incredible piano prodigy featured in the video below is called Ryan Wang. He did the following performance when he was only five. He gave one of his biggest fans, 101-year-old Dorothy Landry, a front-row experience to his skills when he played “Variations on an Inner Mongolian Folk Song” for her.
Landry says Wang was around three years old when she first met him. After exchanging hugs, Landry wished Wang a good trip to China and told him that she’d love for him to see her when he returns. The last request made Wang cry. Wang has performed on The Ellen Show and even Carnegie Hall. But this performance means so much to him. He says, “I like playing for Grandma Dorothy. I think it makes her happy.”
