SPRING VALLEY, N.Y. — Aly Frank of Spring Valley calls herself a human iPod.

She can hear a song once and play it on the piano perfectly.

It's a talent she discovered while in high school, when she'd sit at the piano in the basement of her Jewish day school taking requests from peers — often during class.

Frank's parents and school officials begged her to do her work, but she couldn't help herself, she said.

"I just wanted to play the piano," said Frank, 23. "And that's what would end up happening."

"I know the piano and the piano knows me."

Frank will perform at Lord & Taylor at the Garden State Plaza on Thursday between 6 and 8 p.m.

She'll be taking requests the way she did in high school, just before dropping out to get her GED.

Things only picked up for her career, though.

"I just got better and better," said Frank, who this summer sang the National Anthem for the Rockland Boulders.

At 18, she hit the recording studio and started dropping singles.

As her repertoire of music grew, so did her team. She has a manager, makeup artist, sound crew and a media team.

Only then did she realize that this "whole singing thing" might actually work out.

"If they're going above and beyond for me, then I should go above and beyond for myself," the vocalist said.

She says her parents "finally came to terms with it," but have become her biggest supporters.
