small fourth grader is big on talent

Some cool news out of Seattle about 10-year-old pianist Alexander Lu, a fourth grader who recently won a KING-FM young artists competition, beating out 169 other top students in the area -- most of whom are in high school: Tiny pianist wins big competition.

Still kind of a small dude, Alexander's legs are apparently too short to reach the piano pedals, and his aren't big enough to play the chords in many classical music pieces. But what he lacks in size, he makes up for in super expressive-body movement. Some eyebrow action goes a long way.
