Emily Bear "Diversity" Qwest Records/Concord Music
Every generation produces child prodigies in various fields of endeavor. For music fans, we are fortunate to have an 11 year old piano sensation; Emily Bear has released her first major label CD, "Diversity". Her previous 5 recordings have all been for charitable causes. For most, "Diversity" will serve as an introduction to Miss Bear who has been entertaining audiences on stage and TV since she was 5 years old. MORE JOIN THE CD OF THE MONTH CLUB!
