Piano Player by “Accident”

Derek Amato likes to tell people that when he hit his head on the shallow end of a swimming pool that it
loosened up a marble in his head.

That “marble” unleashed a hidden talent that many are calling a miracle. Suddenly Derek found that he could play the piano. Not “just” play the piano, but play it like a concert pianist, as though he had played his whole life. Ironically, Derek had never played before.

Derek Amato is currently the only medically documented case in the world where sudden musical savant syndrome has been acquired from the result of a brain trauma.

Derek says, “I do believe in miracles”. He has since left his corporate job and has made it his personal quest to share this most miraculous testimony with the world. He is currently working on his second album.

    When our lives are in the Lords hands nothing that may seem so bad that He cannot mend, truly He works all things for our Good cause He always has our best interest at Heart, He is to Be trusted 150%, nothing in our own strength works its all a waste and God is telling us everyday give up our own strength seek Him,
    daily committing our lives to Him, trust and obey is the only way to seeing the Lord more at work in our lives, our God is an awesome God and all the glory belongs to Him Amen

    O Lord, how entirely needful is thy grace for me, to begin any good work, to go on with it, and to accomplish it. For without that grace I can do nothing; but in thee I can do all things when thy grace doth strengthen me.

    This is how what we familiarly know as “AMAZING GRACE” really works! Like Derek as someone who was tranformed from an ordinary corporate man to a CHRIST WORKER—sharing his testimony to attest God’s amazing grace…the grace that spells the difference!
