We have been contacted by the family of 12 year old Peter Rosset - an amazingly talented young man with Down's syndrome in the USA. Peter is twelve years old. He has Trisomy 21 Down's syndrome and was also diagnosed with Leukemia on July 18, 2011. He is currently in remission. Foremost, what characterizes Peter is his love of music. He has been taking piano lessons from Converse College, in Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA for the past two and a half years. Peter would like to get at least one million Youtube views so please have a look at his video above.
