In 1994 a lightning bolt struck Dr. Anthony Cicoria outside a payphone.
"It hurt where the lightning hit me and where it went out," Cicoria said. "It hurt like crazy."
Cicoria survived and soon discovered the near death experience had given life to a new passion.
"All of the sudden I had started having this desire to hear piano music,"said Cicoria."My mom had made me study piano for a year when I was seven, and I hated it."
But now an adult and accomplished surgeon, Cicoria had without explanation fallen in love with it.
"It was almost haunting because it wouldn't stop if I didn't pay attention to it," Cicoria said. "It would become more insistent."
