Rufus King HS student who has been blind since birth competes in drumline competition
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Rufus King High School drumline will compete for the city title this weekend.
This year's group has a special member -- freshman Javon Glass. He's been blind since birth, but that hasn't stopped him from making music and performing with the other drummers.
A senior member of the drumline at King named Cheyenne has helped Javon get his groove on.
"Cheyenne recorded the music for me, she put it on my computer -- my braille computer," said Javon. "When I have time like fifth hour or study hall, I sit on the floor, I have drumsticks in my hand, I listen to the music and I drum to it."
You can check out Javon and the rest of the Rufus drumline Saturday, Dec. 7 at the Milwaukee Drumline Competition at Riverside High School.
Doors open at 11:30.
