A 14-year-old Brooklyn boy who is blind hasn't let his disability stop him from capturing the attention of the famous Piano Man and New York's Finest.

Logan Riman's dazzling piano skills recently got him an invite to play with Billy Joel. He touched the hearts of so many that day, including some NYPD officers.

The police department invited Riman to become part of NYPD Hope, a community outreach program for kids with disabilities that began a little more than a year ago.

Riman was added to the program Thursday. His day began with a police escort to 1 Penn Plaza where he was welcomed by some of New York's top officers.

Riman and other teens performed for a crowd. The teen was then sworn-in to the NYPD.
