Pianist’s Impromptu Performance Goes Viral
A young pianist, who impressed shoppers at Liverpool One with an impromptu performance, has gained more than 11,000 Facebook likes and 4,000 shares in just a matter of days.
The video shows John-Paul Riley playing a cover of River Flows in You from Samuel Vallée.
Faris Khalifa filmed and uploaded the clip – he said he was sat in the shopping centre when he saw John-Paul “get on the piano in L1 and smash it”.
John-Paul later responded, saying:
“I literally can’t believe how big this has gone in one day! This is just the biggest opportunity I will have at being something and doing the one thing I love and I can’t thank everyone enough for the comments, likes and shares!”
