Rachel Flowers, born weighing one pound five ounces, lost her sight not long after birth due to Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP). But by two, Rachel displayed incredible musical skills; they led to her performing and writing music on multiple instruments, attracting stars from Arturo Sandoval to Dweezil Zappa, and the documentary Hearing is Believing. Ahead of a Saturday evening show at Medici's Supper Club in Honolulu, she spent an hour in HPR's Atherton Performing Arts Studio with HPR ATC Host Dave Lawrence.
