Jennifer Lin's parents first realized she was a prodigy the day she sat down and started playing the piano at the age of four. When most children were learning to read, she was composing her own music.

At 10, Jennifer was winning awards and major music competitions, as well as developing her own work as a self-taught artist and maintaining straight A's. When she visited Oprah in 2006, she was 16 and thought to be one of the most gifted musicians in the U.S. Here, Jennifer crafts an astonishing composition on the spot from five notes selected at random, leaving Oprah truly shocked.
