Some of the most entertaining YouTube videos are ones where someone sits at a public piano and unexpectedly wows the crowd. That’s what happened in this fabulous video, which has gone viral on YouTube and TikTok. It shows a young boy playing an amazing version of the theme tune to Pirates of the Caribbean.
He looks incredibly young to be playing so well, especially as he’s dressed in a pink shirt, shorts, and a schoolboy’s cap. His proficiency at the piano suggests a lot of practice, but he doesn’t appear to be more than ten or eleven years old.
The blurb below the video says Andrei of the channel AndreiPiano met the boy, whose name is Tony, at the St. Pancras train station in London. Presumably, Andrei is the man who chimes in and plays a little alongside Tony. It’s nice to see the duet, but honestly, Tony is so fantastic that you almost wish he could leave Tony to play and entertain the crowd alone. Regardless, the crowd appears to love the performance, and so does YouTube.
Since the video was uploaded 7 months ago, it has been viewed 1.675 million times and is one of the most popular videos on the channel. The video has been liked 27,000 times, and viewers really want to know who he is: “Wowwww! Who is this kid? Does he have his own channel? My gosh! Amazing! And that confidence!”
Let’s hope if Tony does start a channel of his own, he’ll tell Andrei so he can link to it in the description. It seems certain that Tony will continue to develop on the piano. He’s so talented now at such a young age; who knows what he could accomplish in the future? He also appears to have a lot of confidence and a lack of stage fright, which will help if he chooses to perform professionally or even compete in piano competitions as he gets older.
Even if he decides to do none of these things, it’s certain that he will get a lot of satisfaction and joy out of his playing, as it’s written all over his face in the video. Best of luck, Tony!
