An Oklahoma man is spreading his gift for music, even at the ripe age of 100. Earl Dean blessed the souls of family, friends and church members when he took to the drums for Sunday services.

Even though his sight is not what it used to be and his hearing has faded, this century old musician can still carry a beat. This is the first time he's played in public in nearly ten years.

His wife says he's not ready to put down the sticks anytime soon.
