John Legend gave commuters at London’s St. Pancras station a very good morning, kick starting their long day ahead, as they commuted to work on Wednesday. He grabbed the station piano (who knew that a train station had a piano??!) and belted out an early morning rendition of some of his biggest hits, including “Ordinary People,” “All of Me” and “Surefire.”
The impromptu convert was to celebrate International Piano Day (and who knew that there was a special piano day?!) He also managed a little plug for his latest album, Darkness and Light, and his forthcoming tour, as crowds of commuters took a little break from rushing to work and crowded around him at the piano. But we can allow him that, after making so many harried people happy at the start of their long day ahead!
Legend teased his Twitter followers before he arrived, tweeting, and “Arriving at London @StPancrasInt on @EurostarUK. Do they still have that piano there?” While St. Pancras station tweeted some hints as to the surprise ahead in honor of this (relatively unknown) holiday. “It’s International Piano Day today! We can’t wait to hear all the performances on our station pianos!” the account for the train station tweeted.
