Avett Ray Maness is a 6-year-old piano prodigy from Dayton, Ohio, who not only taught himself to play piano by ear – but he's also blind.

"The moment he could pull himself to reach the piano, he was playing the melody to 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,'" Avett Ray's mom, Sara Moore, told CBS News. That was when he was just 11 months old. Avett Ray has since gotten a piano teacher, who helps him learn new techniques and classical tunes.

"Music is in his body," Moore said. "He's really practicing on performing now. Since his talent is so amazing, people are asking him to perform."

Avett Ray was also inspired to try rapping by his mom's fiance. His musical preference is always changing, Moore said.

What makes this musical prodigy so inspiring is that he was born with optic nerve fibroplasia. "He's completely blind in one eye but has a little bit of vision in the other," Moore said. "He's significantly visually impaired. He walks with cane and he reads braille."

Moore wants to teach others to be accepting and understanding of people with special needs. She visits Avett Ray's school to teach students about his condition. She also wrote a book called "Cotton Candy Clouds" to raise awareness and show support for visually impaired and blind people.

"He's the character in the book," Moore said. "Basically, he couldn't see the clouds in the sky, so I wrote this book so he could see them." The book serves as "a chance to talk about diversity and how everybody's made special and we're all born with our own gifts," Moore said. "I teach people how to engage with blind and visually impaired people."

Moore says the amount of resources available to blind and visually impaired people is still somewhat limited – considering how many people are affected by these conditions. "If every company would focus on inclusion … what a difference it would make for so many Americans," she said.

Avett Ray is an old soul, his mom said. And with a talent this extraordinary, it's clear he was born with a ton of soul.
