Eric with his daughter Sora, who has vision impairment.
Seventeen-month old Sora loves music; give her a drum or a toy piano, and she will be in her element, or play a beat, and she’ll dance. Her talents don’t stop at music, either. Sora, whose name means ‘sky’ in Japanese, is learning both English and Japanese, languages that are used in her family – and is excelling at both.
