"It's something I've enjoyed from the very first and it's never changed," Elliott said.
She prides herself on playing any genre, from classical to gospel.
"It's always been music all the way" Elliott said.
She's played in recitals, in church, and now at private homes and venues for her adoring fans. She says the fact that she plays almost every day has helped with her arthritis.
"When I can't play, that will be a bad sign," Elliott said.
Elliott hopes to play the piano for some time to come and bring happiness to those who need it.
