A homeless man living on the streets of Sarasota, Florida is getting a lot of attention for his piano music.
Donald Gould started his musical training as a kid, eventually playing for the US Marine Corps years later. After his service, he attended college, aspiring to be a music teacher, but after his wife died, his life changed.
Now, he makes money by playing music on the street.
“I was thinking I could just put my hat on the piano and make a couple dollars and get tips,” Gould says. “I didn’t expect it to jump out to this.”
A nearby restaurant says after hearing Gould’s music, they’re considering hiring him as an act for their piano bar.
