A lone piano may be found in London’s St. Pancras International Station, which is visited daily by millions of travelers. It can be played by anyone who wants to.
While many of the performers who try to amuse tourists may give it their all, very few are as skilled as Cole Lam, who in 2019 dazzled the bustling crowd with a Queen classic while just 12 years old.
Cole in the video is about to start playing when a man interrupts him. The classic Queen song Bohemian Rhapsody is what the man asks.
Everyone was astonished by what happened next, which was thankfully documented on camera. The young musician started to perform the well-known tune, but he didn’t just rattle off the notes. Instead, he started to play the tune so deftly that, if you closed your eyes, you’d think there was an experienced grownup at the piano.
Anyone who went by could see that the youngster was playing with all of his heart and soul. He closed his eyes and gave his act his all.
Thank goodness the pianist himself posted the video of this lovely moment online. According to his YouTube page, Cole is a talented vocalist and songwriter in addition to being a pianist.
And Sir Elton John actually donated the piano at the station!
