Theirs, one of 350,000 homes destroyed by rising water in the town of friendswood, Texas. Back to salvage what he could, Aric sat down to play on rusty strings and a broken bass board one last song. The video going viral. Grammy-nominated singer Vanessa Carlton noticing, tweeting, "This story is so important, I'd like to get him a replacement piano if this one doesn't make it." Nearly four months later, just as the hardings are finishing rebuilding their home, the final touch, that new piano, delivered this week.
