REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Rolando Maaba was recently featured on Good Morning America for his special gift of playing the piano.
Maaba is a janitor who does not only keep the hospital where he works clean, but also calms the guests who are anxiously waiting for their friends or family.
He works at the Rockford Memorial Hospital in Illinois and uses his 15 minute breaks to play the piano.
Maaba is not a trained pianist. He simply plays the piano by ear.
Before working at the hospital, Maaba and his wife used to play the piano at local nursing homes. People have enjoyed his music so much that he now plays at a local restaurant every Wednesday.
