A man plays a melody on the piano in a house destroyed by storms


MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (KARK) — A video of a Kentucky man playing the piano in his destroyed home has gone viral.

the the video was posted Saturday on Facebook by her sister, Whitney Brown, after a tornado ripped through America’s heartland, causing devastating damage.

Brown said his brother, Jordan Baize, lost his home, but his family made it out safely.

“I have been overwhelmed with the love my family has shown,” Brown said in the post. “We are all safe, thank God.”

Brown said she was packing up whatever she could find in the house that could be salvaged when she heard her brother playing.

“I was standing in his room packing up everything I could salvage and I heard the most beautiful sound. Music,” she said.

Jordan sat in front of his grand piano and played the Gaither Vocal Band’s gospel song, “There’s Something About That Name.”

Brown said everything around her brother at the time “was broken.” The piano even had water damage and missing keys.

Brown said her brother didn’t know she was taking video at the time.

“But he still used his gift to glorify his God in the best way he knew how,” she said.

Dozens of people have been killed in several Kentucky counties. The state was by far the hardest hit by an unusual swarm of tornadoes in mid-December across the Midwest and South that leveled entire communities and left at least 14 people dead in Illinois, Tennessee, Arkansas and Missouri.
