An episode of the television show “Ingenious Minds” featuring local Rex Lewis-Clack aired on the Discovery Science Channel on April 27 at 10:30 p.m. The eight-episode series, which originally premiered in December, chronicles the lives of exceptional people. The updated episode explains Lewis-Clack’s impressive musical abilities, including playing any piece of music perfectly from memory after hearing it once, despite his blindness and autism. Lewis-Clack is in 10th grade at Malibu High School and played the piano at an event in honor of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, with Vice President Joe Biden in attendance, earlier this year.
