Albany- How many times have you entered a prize drawing, only to see someone else win.

Destiny Yancey, 9, knows what it's like to be a big winner. She won this piano from Jim's Piano & Organ on Slappey Boulevard. Destiny visited the store recently with the rest of her class at Sherwood Acres Elementary School.

"We took them on a tour of the showroom. We have over 100 pianos here," said Susan Hardee with Jim's Piano & Organ. "And we played for them, even on the $182,000 piano."

Maybe it's Yancey's destiny to be a great piano player. She also won four free lessons.
