Mormon pianist Desirae Brown looking at uncertain future because of rare eye ailment

When the audience sees one of the 5 Browns — currently on a multi-city concert tour — walk out on stage wearing shades, it raises some questions.

Why would one of the five pianists who've changed the way people view classical music be sporting sunglasses? Is she going for a Hollywood look? Did she walk into a door?

The answer is sobering.

The truth is Desirae Brown literally has to look at the world through rose-colored sunglasses as she deals with permanent vision loss in one eye and a threat to the other.

Bright lights hurt.
